Yes, it’s better than the original. Illustrator creates straight, smooth, scalable lines — something you won’t get in a photo editor, like Photoshop.
Your angles appear to be a bit off from being parallel with each other, though (see attached image). The one having to do with the small triangle are far enough off to look intentional. The larger ones, however, look more like mistakes.
In addition, I agree with @Eriskay’s observation about the V. If you made all the line angles I mentioned above the same, it would solve that problem and, in the process, simplify the shape’s visual complexity. Then again, it might change the overall shape to be something other than you wanted.
