Despite Years of Sweat Equity

Hi From the Critique Club!
Ok, you know what the main problem was here;) I like scenes like this, and the idea was good, but without the sign being legible, the story you were trying to tell got lost.
I too have problems (who knows why) keeping the camera horizontal, and you rotated to compensate, but it still needs a little more?
The colours are soft and muted, with those nice tans, blues and blacks, creating a calm scene. The lack of people and things on the tables adds the feeling of emptiness.
The composition is a little busy, but that's what makes images like this more interesting. I might have cropped the chair back at the bottom of the image as it's distracting.
The lighting seems a little flat, but again that adds to the mood of closure..if only we could have seen those signs;)
