In general I'm not into "Artsy" photos but this one took me by surprise. One thing I was taught years ago is that you can line up 10 photos on a wall and your eye will immediately go to one or two. First impressions are key and don't need to be explained...they just "Work"

I like your vision very much, It reminds me of a shot I did years ago of my footsteps in the sand disappearing into the ocean. It reflected the way I felt being stuck on a very small Alaskan Island for a year in the military.

Perfect, It creates a very definable "tension" of the legs only being seen on the body.

I don't think you used a tripod which seems to be fine for this type of shot, and the perceived motion of the foot works very well without being blurred. I'm a little conflicted by the blacks, wondering if they could be opened up a bit?

As I said above it appears to be just fine.

The specular reflections work very well and are not always easy to attain

excellent, I see no problem at all with focus, DOF seems to be great too

It would not be able explain it. It is a step in the life. To where it takes us ... it is a decision of each one.

How to improve your photo
1.
I generally don't like "centered" shots but you made it work. I don't see any reason to do anything different.
2.
Take a look at the blacks in "Post edit" and open them up just a tad and see if it looks any better to you. I use a calibrated monitor here so mine might look a little different than yours.
3.
Just keep your vision....it works for you! Good luck
