This is one I took several years ago, that I have been messing with ever since. I finally am at a place where I like it, but wanted to see what everyone else thought.

The twisted flag doesn't help either. I think a wider shot would be better and a properly hung flag.

I think what the 'problem' is, is that there is no real subject. The eye wanders all over the photo looking for a landing point. The sign 'A. Schwab' is probably the subject, but the border on the left is cut off, and I keep thinking it's an 'L', and that there is more to it. The angle doesn't work for this either.

Fair enough. I may try to get out and shoot the same location again. Although the owners haven't repainted recently and much of the color if this faded. The flag is gone as well. I think this was probably still decorated for july 4th. Any suggestions for the angle?

Depends on what's around. It might be good straight on, or looking down the sidewalk with the building on one side. If you go for the same/similar angle, I'd step back enough to get everything in the frame. You can always crop.

You'll really just have to see when you get there what framing presents itself the closest to what you envision.

Remove the little bit of light building in the bottom right corner. Just run the blue down. Widen the shot, don't put the flagpole right against the edge of the frame. Widen the shot some. get more of the sign edge. Does make it look like an L. Tone down your logo it's the brightest thing in the photo.Agree about maybe stepping back getting a little different angle. I like the subject. Interesting design at the top of the building and the flag motif.

HI. The shop name leaves me wanting to know what it is they sell, there's nothing to draw me into the shot as it is. Worth a re-visit.
