It's a beautiful subject, with a lot of potential. I think I would be looking at a stronger diagonal, but that's just how I see things. I wonder why you darkened the keys? To me this needs the contrast of the light falling on the white keys.

I've uploaded a Mod, keeping to your original proportions but putting the keyboard on a stronger slant. This to my eye creates a more dynamic feel, and it fits the diagonals more or less between the top left and bottom right corners.
I lightened the white keys somewhat, but kept something of your dark, subdued atmosphere.
I suspect that the date setting on your camera may need changing!

A grab shot at 1/10 sec? Must have a steady hand. Much too dark for me unless it was a filthy piano. The keys should be brightwith strong contrasting blacks, retaining detail in the whites. It just looks under exposed to me.

Sorry to not go with the others.
