I always find clock faces hard. The main problem is the edge of the clock, do you show some of the wall behind or crop down to only show the clock. I find that this picture has the same problem.
I would definitely crop away the border (is it a door frame?) on the left. But I would still probably concentrate more on specific elements. The blue is a lovely colour and I would be looking to make more it it to give the picture real presence.
In fact, is this upside down? IIIX doesn't exist as a roman numeral, seven should be VII
The shadows indicate that this is the right way up! I've spent a while looking at this, it's an unusual composition but it works for me, and I reckon the inclusion of the verticals on the left is important, they somehow anchor the shot, hold everything in place when so many lines are tugging towards the right.
I'm curious as to where this is, it's not the Prague clock.
In fact, I had to look at the original image of the building - in Piazza San Marco, Venice - to confirm that this was indeed the right way up! The numerals all face the same direction around the circumference and, therefore, some appear upside down - presumably the inner diamond shows which way it should be read.
Many thanks for your comments. It's great to get other perspectives.
Thanks for the information, Venice is on my wish-list...
