    Hi, I'm just a noob using a D40, but I'll give a few comments okay?

    Think it doesn't really show the dramatic moment of the storm at all, but fits with the title, with the stark telecomm tower.

    Focus on the clouds is not really there because the clouds don't really have any texture and there is slight overexposure at the right side? Perhaps if you wanted to juxtapose the tower and the clouds, you could have focused and metered according to the stormclouds near the tower to capture the texture and colour properly, and cut out the distracting streetlamps on the right side (like you said).

    The converging lines made by the road does generally lead to the tower, but goes off to the right. Also isn't very strong because the roadis a bit dark. Did you PP to add the vignetting? Perhaps if you had taken with the camera looking up from lower it would have cut this out, and made the tower look taller as well..

    yeah, just my take on it
