    This is a great shot! For me, I would crop out the lamp on the left, it's a bit distracting. In fact, if you crop down on just the front of the building, that would be cool too. Not majorly necessary, just a thought.

    Hi John, I think I'd have to agree with Jim. The light on the left is exceedingly bright compared to the rest of the image so it creates a strong distraction. Cropping it out or toning it down significantly would help. Fairly decent exposure and nice detail for your first night shot!

    Looks much better to me. An interesting composition with the building sides tending to 'flow' from the curved entrance area.

    Nice shot, John. I like the cropped one much better .

    Did you use a relatively high ISO for these shots?
