You win the prize for making something necessary but ugly into something beautiful. Love the gradient of blue to red and the starbursts on the lights.

Love the natural gradient stripes of the sunset. This has great contre jour. The stark silhouette of the bush and lines of the structure show up nicely against the sky. I like the flare created by the lights. Bumping up.

Good colours but the vertical lines have damaged your composition.
