Where Have All The Pictures Gone

First of all, welcome to DPC. I'm always glad to offer critiques and opinions, especially when it's a first entry. Again, welcome.
One of the biggest voter peeves is image size. Looking through, I see that no one mentioned it, but always try to use the full size parameters that DPC allows. Other than that, there does seem to be a focus issue. It could also be the grain of ISO 1600, but voters like crisp focus and vivid colors.
Your lighting is a strength. There are no overexposed areas, and your shadows work well to contrast your subject nicely.
Your use of empty space also adds strength to the image. You captured very nice detail on the hanger and the wall.
I do get a feeling of emptiness, but I think it could have been amplified by including a bit more of the empty wall. Don't be discouraged, amandalore is right. Voters are sometime hard to figure out. Keep shooting and keep entering. That's the nest way to figure them out.
