Although I very much like the subjects and the way they have been shot, I think the picture is affected by the background. In particular, I feel that the transition to the grass area in the top left part of the frame does not work.
I think this is a good example to refer to in emphasising the need for us to think of the whole frame when composing our pictures. We must always be looking at what is in the background when we are composing the picture.

Both BIG and RED. Now that is an attention getter!
To add to Donald's excellent observation and comments, if the objects in the background were not also bright colours (red, yellow and white), I suspect that the background wouldn't be as much in conflict with the subject (whatever that thingy is!).
Hope this helps!

Even if you get rid of the bright objects in the background the grass doesn't go with the object even though I think red and green should be compatible. The object should be somewhere else like perhaps against a concrete/stone background, steps to a museum or similar building.
Though the subjects are of unequal size and colour emphasis it is a rather "two" shot and though it might cause depth of field problems a different angle to not have them at the same distance would help to add depth to the shot.

I totally agree about the background distraction. I wonder if darkening the background would help?
