Maybe because IMO it's good as is. Not every shot needs to have a blurred background to be effective.
And white balance is a personal preference. The "correct" WB is not always the best. For a a fall theme shot, a warmer balance is preferred.
If something is 'good enough' there is no need to improve it, right?
Good enough for whom?
Do you represent a target audience? Or an authority of photographic education or criticism?
I did not think so.
One of the first lessons in photography is "What is your subject".
Then there are lots of ways how to make your subject stand out, show its particularities, put it into a context, make it a part of a composition etc.
Then you go deeper, to the meaning that the subject carries to you and how you can use your techniques (but only if you master them) to make your point.
Things like colour balance are questions of taste but only if you know how to master them, how to get things right. No have to know to rules if you want to break them graciously.
If you do not master the technique, then your pictures happen and they will remain snapshots. Some snapshots are nice to look at if the photographer has been lucky and if you like the person in the picture.
The thing of learning photography is needing less luck to end up with a decent picture.
Or a bunch of them. Like 4 keepers from a series of 80 shots.
Are you going to make a point here?
I am interested in what it might be.
