Positives:
Composition strong with this image. Great star patterns around the lights. Interesting and brave choice to use BW over color for a night shot. Works well.

Technicals:
Star patterns excellent, general overall image quality good. Sharpness fine. Whether true or not, looks like noise reduction might have been slightly overdone. Good overall tonality, exposure and lighting. Might be slightly oversharpened on some monitors.

The Challenge:
Meets the challenge well and brave choice for a night shot.

Suggestions:
Unsure how do do this, but suggest you do something to bring out a little more detail in some of the smoothed areas in the water reflections to reduce 'neatimage' effect.
