From the Critique Club:

This looks like a very interesting building and I would love to see it. I love architectural photography! You have a nice composition here. I like the curve of the door frame contrasted with the straight lines in the wall.

There are a couple of things that jump out at me that would improve this shot dramaticaly. The first thing that I noticed is the lighting is VERY harsh. It looks like you took the shot when the sun was very high in the sky. If this was taken earlier or later when the sun was at a lower angle you would have more 'depth' in the shot. The detail work of the door and above the door would look more dimensional. The way it is shot here looks very flat. You are also overexposed on the door. This results in a loss of the detail. It also looks like your focus is a touch off. This will almost always result in a lower score.

If you can go back to this scene at a more photo friendly time of day, this could end up being a very nice shot to redo!

I would have liked to have seen more of the door.
