    And, of course, the central copyright needs removing.

    Otherwise, I think the angle is good and you have achieved excellent exposure for a difficult subject.

    I'm not an expert, would it be nicer if it wasn't so bright, it is night and supposed to be dark. Just an idea and it is hard to take a clean image at night so well done.

    I think I would take a HDR in this case

    Thanks, Folks, for the encouragement.

    @Arith: Making it less bright gets a black sky alright but also reduces the foreground to darkness. Yet, it should probably be less bright. I have a RAW version and I'll check whether I can achieve it there or I need to revisit the spot. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I disagree. There is no reason why the OP should not attempt to protect his images if he so wishes; at least it stops idiots stealing them and adding them to Flicker and claiming them as their own!

    Anyway, good exposure on the photo, I don’t think it needs to be darker.

    I do not mean all of it and not by a lot, if the white interior around the statue is reduced by a very small amount it may have more dramatic effect, but I don't know, it is nice as it is.

    I see a dynamic range from nearly blown out in the bright area to black. The exposure is probably close to as good as you can get for a one shot gets all image. In order to increase the detail, especially in the dark areas you might want to consider HDR or masking.

    Yeah, thanks, Chuck. The dynamic range can be better managed.
