Really beautiful variety of colors and lighting! This is not really a critique, but a suggestion--maybe cropping out just a bit of the right side would help to guide a viewer's focus a bit more. Right now, there seems to be quite a bit going on, but I think taking out some of the right side--until you can no longer see the red sign, perhaps--would help to create some dynamic movement, where the eye of the viewer is naturally drawn from the pedestrian (who would be positioned closer to the edge of the photo) to the bright illuminated sign in the bottom left hand corner (essentially forecasting the path of the subject in the photograph). But overall, very nicely done!

Thanks for the critique! I can certainly see how that change in composition would work to draw the eye along the leading line of the pedestrian's path to the left.
You bet :D Hope you found it helpful!

i wrote that bc i was tired and forgot i have like. a professional art education, but like formally i gotta say the way you have the blues and red contrasting in the same image is really unique sand also beautiful. The fact you have the human subject kind of breaking from the background and approach the foreground was very smart and interesting, as it helps draw the viewer's eye to other places. The way you compose the image to try to give a sense of order an otherwise chaotic landscape was very tastefully done, and overall creates an enticing atmosphere.

Thank you for the in-depth feedback! I quite like the colors in this image as well. I especially like the green lights in the far background among the wires. I wish I could have more of that in the whole image.
