Nightlight
Lens: SMC Pentax-M 28mm f3.5 Camera: Pentax K-30 Photo Location: Planet Omicron Persei 8 ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: Above 6s 

This was just a shot I took, on a whim, on a neat dark street downtown. Not too much thought put into it. Well, tell me what you guys think?

Well that's a shame, as the raw materials were there for something quite outstanding.

I think it's a matter of composition. A few steps back, and a few steps to your left, if possible, would have made the vertical with "Antiques" one side for a frame, with "Garage" the top of the frame, and would have still allowed for the lit office on the second story to be in view.. The long exposure works in your favor, lots of detail comes out of the shadows.

Sadly, I couldn't I was literally up against a wall that was not scalable, and to go further left would give you too oblique of an angle on the building...meaning the perpective would've been off. Unfortunately, given the terrain, this was the best I could do, and with the widest angle lens I have in my kit.
