This is powerful, and very well seen - I particularly like the tension created by the angles of the wheel and the wall, pulling against each other.
The framing of the name is effective - can I suggest that there's a good alternative square crop to be had from the upper part of the frame, which would simplify that frame?
Hope you won't be offended by the suggestion.

Im not offend, in fact its quite a good idea. The bottom corner looks a bit messy.
Ive upload a cropped version.

Yes, V2 works for me. I might have taken it a bit higher, but you've got a diagonal hitting the bottom right corner which is strong.
Square contains lines much more tautly.
RE version 2

Quote:I might have taken it a bit higher

My original thought was to take it higher, but i found the sky in the top right corner became too distracting. I Also really liked the diagonal line from the bottom right.
I do like to look for a lot of line and direction coming in and out of corners.
Thanks for the suggestion
