It is a good subject.

The outdoor environment and lighting is taking away a lot of the impact.

This would have been so much more effective in a lowly lited garage with dark background or wood panel on a worn out bench.

So basically what you are saying is he shouldn't have bothered.

Well, as a documentary photo, it served the purpose.

As artistic photo, it needs better lighting and background to bring it up to level.

I won't exactly say "don't bother". Everything starts somewhere. My comments are meant to offer ideas to improve from where it was.
