A good choice for this challenge, with the sign as the only foreground element, and the cool lights and clouds in the background.

The horizontal shape also lets the lights trail off into infinity on the right, reinforcing the pointing element of the sign. I wish you had a teeny bit more backround to the left of the sign; it looks a little crowded up against the left edge.

The color is alright a little over the top could have been a little more realistic and or gone further with the distortion of the scene color. The sign and the clouds in the back ground seem to close in color and cause a distraction pulling your eye to the far bottom right hand corner. The lighting source the glare is a little bit of a bother as well above the sign maybe should have become apart of the picture itself to add to its surreal effect of isolation. The back ground might do good out of focus just enough then the cloud color in bottom right hand corner might take less precedence over viewing the sign. Its a nice image to begin with something more. Thank You for sharing it.

Very creepy surreal shot. The sign looks like its stuck on after the fact. The cityscape is just a little too small. I like how the sky is opening up in the right side of the frame. Too bad it couldn't have done that a little more. I reallly like the way htis was taken. Good work.

A truly beautiful image, well composed, wonderful colours. I find the reflection of the light above the lampost to be a very slight distraction, but apart from that, one of my personal favs for this challenge. Good Luck!

Like the composition, maybe a bit too much black in the image. Not sure if it would have looked better at dusk.
