    Your pic is not bad. I also newbie here. I don't know whether I can take pics like this. Maybe we can learn together.
    By the way what camera you using?

    some tips for this shot, try taking the same picture just after the sun has set, the sky will be blue instead of black.

    I like the contrast between the fluorescent and incandescent lights.

    Nice effort on the picture. The "starburst" effect on the lights are good. And as ortega has suggested, shooting around just after sunset makes a good deep-blue sky which really adds to the picture.

    Anyway, you can try concentrating on composition...it looks a bit crowded with so many things around...it distracts the viewer away from the subject (which is the hotel, right?)

    Keep shooting!

    thanks again everyone for the pointers! will start my next session on an evening and see how to work with a bluish sky too.

    and yeah i had wanted to take a pic of the hotel but was hiding in an isolated corner of clifford pier so couldn't get a unblocked view. shall venture out of that corner for more pics the next time

    and more tips...
    Pictures always should have a special story behind it or a special meaning to the photographer.
