This looks like a huge super store! Quite dramatic background, great colours, superb reflection. I think,[] though, that leaving the aperture quite open at f/4.8 the products this rep sells, and himself too, do not appear very clear in the picture. Composition can be tweaked a bit, I suspect you wanted to give out the symmetry of the place so I might had cropped a very tiny portion from left to get rid of the structural white object that appears in teh top left corner and the first appliance with the red screen on the left. The picture itself - or the space it depicts rather - is imbalanced to the left and without knowing what else was there is quite difficult to make very accurate suggestions. I have visualised a horizontal crop so all the objects and the rep appear in the middle, making a perfect symmetrical final picture. It is such a case that the rule of thirds should not be applied to my opinion. Being such a reflective flooring (and so skillfully built walls) the shape \\ // is such a feast that it works also in square cropping or a vertical - containing only the rep, yet very, very interesting.

This is quite extraordinary - very well done for seeing the potential here. I still rate the human eye as our most valuable gadget...
Something that I really appreciate - find a strong, linear abstract background - but then it needs a random human presence to bring it to life, add scale.
The only change that I would definitely make to this would be to get rid of the little intruding line top left. Beyond that, the image lends itself to so many possibilities crop-wise. I'd like to see a 50/50 split between wall and floor, a square crop or two. I shall have fun trying them out.

OK I've uploaded five Mods, the first being simply an adjustment to the top left corner, the others being intended to demonstrate the abstract quality here. Square works best for me, I like the way it gives a more taut feel to the lines and angles, a sense of tension. Which suits a figure of authority.
One other point, working on this file it looks as though you saved it at quite a low quality level.
