I like so many things about this image, its hard to know how to integrate what I perceive as the shortcomings.
What do I like?
BW conversion, toning. Format. Texture play. Perfect placement of diagonal lines in right corners, positioning of vertical elements off-center left.
So what's the problem? Maybe none, but the shallow DOF still snags me, along the last 20% or so of the right image. My eye doesnt want to go there, but I think the degree of blur makes it hard not to be inadvertently pulled away from the draw to the knob. So, what about a recrop? Maybe more typical portrait orientation, with some off from the right?

Scott,

Looked at the shot before I checked out the posts and I am right there with you.

Slim up the right side some and this shot is killer in BW with all the lines, texture and tones.

Sick one, Bob.

I'll be contrary.
I like it is as-is. I don't see the need to re-crop. My eye goes right to the doorknob, and if it drifts, the OOF area pushes it right back to the doorknob.

Jeff & FarmerJohn,

Thank you for your thoughts - I'll vote with the too much OOF crowd. Now I need to find a way to fix it
