Need CC on this photo, received at most 3 stars in challenge.

The picture below was entered in the My best photo this week challenge and I am trying to understand why people didn't like it better than they did. The highest vote it got was 3 stars.

I would be happy for any and all detailed replies, but to get a better overview of what people think I am also adding a poll.

I think it's a great shot - deserving to be somewhere in the top entries of a given challenge.

This SUBJECT wouldn't be appealing to me, no matter how much you improve technical or artistic aspects.
