This shot doesn't really have anything that grabs you or holds your interest. I think it could be down to 2 things. The angle you have taken the shot isn't great, I think from a little lower down would have helped, though perhaps you were avoiding that for the background. The second is the way you have converted it to B&W, it looks like a straight forward de-saturation, which as well as removing colour has also removed any real life from the shot.

Experiment with B&W conversions, there is a million different ways of doing it. I personally like Nik Software Silver Efx Pro but I'm sure there's loads of others out there you can try as well.

Very boring subject. At least if you choose this type of subject, try taking the photo from a different angle, such as lower, etc.
