This isn't doing much for me tbh,if you were going for a silhouette then the lens cap needs to be a touch darker,if your intention was to show the cap then it could do with lightening slightly at least to see the letters.
I find the large yellow oval at the top very distracting,so too the dark triangle close to the top.Fairly easy to remove in your editing program.
the composition is ok,I do like negative space...some don't.
I like the warm colours of the bg.

It may help when uploading to the Critique Gallery if you give us an idea of what you were trying to achieve,where you think you have gone right or wrong, then we would have a bit more to go on & try to help you more.

This might have been nicer to use a lens rather than a cap, allowing light to shine through it. Otherwise, not sure what you're trying to achieve....?

Not sure what you want from this. If the object in the fingers had been an interesting shape in silhouette, then OK, but this really is not. The subject is the lens cap, the background is just that, a background.

I've looked at this a couple of times and I just cannot see what it is trying to achieve. It seems very strange to create a near-silhouette that practically obliterates the detail in the actual subject.
There's scope here for a Father Ted style 'Near - big. Small - far away...' exercise, but the emphasis needs to be on the Near - big element.
Plus - that nail varnish effect visible on the thumb nail is horrible and a real distraction!
