    pillar on the left is really distracting and takes up big portion of pic. u may need to compose this in other ways so it becomes abstract

    my 2 cents...

    Joo Chiat area has nice peranakan buildings, may like to try it.
    I like those flowery tiles, roof tiles, gates, cornices.... swee swee..

    It lacks any form of visual impact to be really interesting I feel. Keep trying, man

    Doesn't tell much. If from a foreigner's view, how would it speak to them? I think they might get stumped. Showing a clearer composition of the subject in pray and the subs like the offerings would be a good idea, perhaps from the side, etc. Improve on the angle. Background too cluttered.
