That big white half-circle on the right distracts me to no end ... and I am not too fond of the scene we get to see here, either. If at least there had been someone there working on the things I would understand why you wanted to take photos in that workshop. But as it is, I find this quite boring and poorly composed.
Something I try to keep in mind when taking a photo is that ONLY that exact frame will be communicated to the viewer without any backstory. That's the challenge in making a photograph... how to convey a feeling, emotion, etc. with one image. Just something to keep in mind... for this specific shot if you didn't say it was a parade prep shot I wouldn't have any idea what it was.
Another tip I can offer up is when I first started shooting I always tried to specifically identify the subject and figure out what exactly makes it interesting. It's too easy to think "Oh that think looks purty." <snap> but to some random person looking at the pic they might be completely lost. So if you can't answer those two questions for a shot it might be best to keep looking.
