straighten, crop. the lights are interesting, but the black sky and road would waste a lot of space on a newspaper front page.

I know you wanted to get the lights in the shot but there is too much negative space. Especially the road in front. I also have a problem with the light that obliterates the name of the place which should be the focal point. A really good idea that needs just a bit of work, I think. DPz

I can remember when "grand openings" were common..mostly car dealerships. takes me back many years. Good job.

This photo needs something, like a thousand people on the outside waiting to get in. As far as grand openings go, this looks more like a regular day. The people being there would make it a whole lot more newspaper worthy - Inspzil

kind of a lot of empty top and bottom, keep on taking long exposures at night though they rule.

Nice idea but too much noise. Lower the ISO and go up a little on the apperture..

Good idea. I think it should have been cropped a little more, though. And you should have slid right a little so the street light did not obscure the name of the place.

Maybe if you'd pulled a little more to the right and gotten the rest of the building the ight wouldn't be right in front of the words. But still a very good night picture. Beautifully lit like it's poseing for you. Makes me want to read the article and see what kind of food they serve and what's in the showroom. Good job. Great photo. Maybe a little soft on the focus - just a little. Crop it closer to the left side, but overall good photo. PTL7

Exposure was a bit too long.

This looks good, however, I think I tighter crop would make it even better.

Neat idea, and cute little mall. Might of been closer for my liking. Still your on topic. Good eye. Justine

The opening would look more grand from a closer and more dramatic (lower) angle. Plus it looks like no one showed up.

Cool shot

doesn't look like much of a grand openning to me... where is every body. No journalisti impact here even though the pic is good. 4
