Thank you all for commmenting.
This was an abandoned house, with a chaotic yard, which I couldn't enter. On the yard, there was this chair and a white sofa, which I tried to photograph, but didn't manage to get the right angle and light (it was a very bright sunny day).
DOF should be longer, but I had to zoom in all the way with my tiny point and shot. I believe this was my best angle (without break in and enter), considering I was too far away.
When I edited the photo, I had to decrease contrast and brightness, or the white wall would be completely blown out (and that is why it is a bit dark).
Again, thank you for your comments and tips, wich were all appreciated.

Alternate title: "The Waiting Room" - Pretty good, but a little dark and not sure if you couldn't have gotten a better angle on the composition.

try to get your main subject (ie the seat) in the better lit area.

The chair does seem oddly out of place. Nice textures.

A longer DOF would have boosted your score. The chair and the small window, important elements are a tad oof. Compositionally pretty good. You got me to comment on my first pass. this works for me but I can't point you to a specific reason as to why. 6 now, may bump later.
