    I like the colours! Pity a bit too cloudy heh...

    I think the words are blur because at higher exposure they are blown... not sure if the 'ghosting' removal will help, if not may need to manually blend in the words from the underexposed ones

    i look at all 4 picture i took , the cloud almost the same, so i got no idea how manually blend can help. Thank for pointing out the method.

    Looks like a decent attempt.

    The reason why the building signages were cled out is because they are too bright(relative to the ambient lighting). The solution is to take the photo sometime earlier in the evening when you have brighter ambient light to even out the exposure.

    Its not that obvious but the vertical lines are converging. That can be corrected quite easily.

    i am not sure that the colours are working to your advantage here in this photo. i think this shot could also work in b&w, possibly resulting in a less flat-looking image once the forms and textures are accentuated.

    Changing the picture to b&w give the image a new look , totally refreshing and more interesting look, but I have to chance my title to b&w.

    Overall, it looks great for night shoot. However, the composition looks a little imbalance as it has a few focus points than one, which will make it a greater shot.

    The four shot I took is manual mode with tripod and remote shutter release , the only thing that I adjust is shutter speed , I will not adjust aperture , thanks for dropping by.
