Question Should I Submit this?

Should I submit this picture I took yesterday? The original got rejected a couple of times.

I would like honest opinions. Thanks.

Not sure if its blurry, but it does look a little bit grainy. The b&w really shows that.

The image quality is going to have to be improved by quite a bit before we are able to publish that one. Sorry!

No, I would not.

It is blurry (number boards are a great reference point). There is too much lead room on the lefthand side. The photo is unlevel; leaning to the left. Making it black and white does not fix these problems, and as VS points out, it actually makes the grain come out more.

Thanks for the thoughts, I didn't think it would make the cut and I agree with everything that was said.
