Er except the horizontal tilted, I think it is an interesting picture..Er you also need to lift up your cam a little bit because of the texts are distractive..

Some images work, some don't. Some can stand alone, some cannot. Some needs a proper complimenting layout, some need not. Ask yourself whats wrong. Why it is wrong, how can u enhance it.

Anways, the tilt is bad. needs to be corrected. Perspective is wrong cos of the leaning forward due to low angle shot. Conversion to this tone is not a food idea. Shows this was shot in bad, flat light. Not much tonality and depth.

Reshoot and work on it paying attention to the above details.

Cheers

an important thing to learn in art is learning to comprehend the subject.

what is it in the picture that is interesting? it's rather obvious that the
simplicity of the diagonal lines attracted your attention. so, what's so
interesting about the simplicity of diagonal lines?

one of the first things to learn in all arts is the learn composition. music,
painting, even the art of cooking, all require appropriate composition.
composition puts together elements to make a statement, tell a story,
trigger the senses. and in composition, one needs to learn the rules through
simple means or simple combinations/permutations. by minimising things, one
sees the effect of the rules. and it's after learning the rules that one learn
to see beyond the rules (i.e. breaking rules, breaking simplicity)

the current picture is full of unnecessary elements, so it needs to be simplified
some more. for example, cropping away non-contributing elements, and
increasing the contrast to remove more information so as to just focus on
the lines.

I like this, nice crop, I didnt really look at it that way.
