I think you need a more interesting and compelling subject for your photo. This just doesn't say anything to me.

I like the overall composition of this piece. The invasive darkness (did you use some filter for this effect) that is lit only by the neon sign; the angles of the straight edges. This works well as it cannot be anywhere except "on the town" and it is definitely nighttime.

The overriding color in this composition is the red/white color from the neon sign. The image almost tires and dries my eyes the way neon signs can at night. Once again, I'm interested to find out how you achieved this color; through filtration or just camera settings.

The lighting is where this photo takes on personlity. The cropping is well selected in that the artist gives enough space to the image so that the viewer can see how the neon light is overpowered by the darkness of the night. It takes little room on the right of the screen to see the power of the darkness. The left side of the image takes more real estate to see the light diffuse.

The focus seems a little soft but that could be the effect of the neon light.

I like this image as it isn't a bright picture of an area I'd be likely to venture into at night. It is a darker, more flavorful area and the personality of this locale is captured in this photo of the neon sign that stands as a beacon for the whole area.

LOL, I was about to "flame" you for mispelling ResTaurant! Not very interesting, kinda gloomy in fact.
