I tried to make a small PCB layout using the following parts

1. Screw terminal 2 Pins
2. Screw terminal 2 Pins
3. Diode 4N1007
4. Capacitor

Schematic diagram: I made one schematic

PCB layout : I have converted schematic into the layout

It is just a small experiment and I need your opinion with my small example

Is it good design or I need it to modify for a better result?

If it's good then I wish to add more component's

Note : It is just an experiment for PCB designing

I would move everything as close together as possible, but you don´t show how big the components are. Also I would use copper planes instead of thin traces to have best current handling, such that basically all the pcb area is covered in copper.

Hi kubeek
Just modified as you said

diode 1n4007 diameter 2.54 mm, horizontal, grid 10.16 mm
capacitor 6.2 mm

Artwork is "art".
Make it as beautiful as you can.

Also:
1. Give maximum spacing where possible
2. Don't enter a pad and leave the pad, i.e. connect only one trace to the pad.

I would to add 7805 IC
Why are you using a 1uF capacitor and a rectifying diode? Either the cap is too small or you don't need the diode.

Unless the diode is for reverse polarity protection. In that case, you should use a bridge rectifier.
