The lighting would be fine, even interesting - cool buffing marks or whatever on the surface - but the background is horribly complicated and distracting. So it becomes a failed artistic shot or seen as such, so it gets put into the category of documentation shot, so bad light.

I agree with J, that background kills the shot. Only some serious bokeh would have saved it.

I was going to mention the nifty fifty! I too fail all too often to remember to take it out of my bag.
