I am very open to advice on this since I am new to adding words to pictures.
You did a good job for your first time! Using a photo with some empty space in it for the text is a good place to start, and that’s what you did! One other thing to think about is placing the text in such a way that it is easy to read, as well as artistic. A simple way to begin is by choosing font colors that complement the photo and are in contrast to the background on which they’re placed. So, dark text on light background, light text on dark background. This video might be helpful in giving some more ideas as well. It covers some good design principles!
