Hunter's Point...woke up at 4 AM to get with my friend up there at around 5:45 (heck of a bike i tell ya), and took some pictures. Realized I have a ton of dust on my CMOS sensor, so about 90% of the shots are unusable. This one, luckily enough, is :D
I like it...I'm not sure it'd do well though. perspective..?

While it is an interesting photo, like you, I'm not sure if it really screams interesting perspective. Obviously, everything is a perspective, but what i was looking for in this challenge is a perspective that added something to the subject.
The fence is barely visible in ths shot. maybe if you had a flashlight and long exposure you could have painted it by hand. That could have definately been interesting.
The colors are neat. I like the red/blue of the sky.
The lights of the city really don't add much to the photo. They seem to be too bright, or too blurry to really matter much.
So, while you have a neat sky, there's too much of a lack of detail in the city and not enough light on the fence to really work for me.
There's really no where around here where a person can go to overlook a city, so definatly not something I see every day. I'd trek up there often on good nights to experiment with different things.

Those three black square things that blend in with the other black stuff? Is that the fence on the top of the world? Who are they trying to keep out of there anyway?

The only problem that I see with this photo is that there isnt enough lighting on the fence. Just a little more and it would have been great.

Would have benefited from a little more exposure of the foreground

Neat shot! I didn't score it as high as it could have been. The fence line is hard to separate from the city and mountain lines. It just blends too much where you've captured it now. What a wonderful view!
