The monument seems a bit overexposed and as a result lost all its detail. Love the movement in the flags.

The monument appears to be blown out--did you try a really small aperture and ISO 100? Might be leaning a little to the right, too.

Windy night? Prob would have exposed it a bit less to make the flags less blurry.

The exposure looks a touch too long the monument is too bright for my taste.

This is a wonderful shot, however the exposure is off a touch, too long of a shutter or too big of an apeture or something. I'd like to see some detail in the lights across the bottom and not have the Tower so blown out. Otherwise its a beautiful shot. 6

Problem 1 is the subject is tilted. Problem 2 is it's blown out. - 4

Not too much detail. Maybe it has something to do with the resolution or maybe you didn't use tripod. Night shots are very difficult. Centered composition was a good choice.

I think the monument is a little too overexposed.

It would look very nice... but all the highlights are blown to wherever and beyond. Try to underexpose, you can always light up afterwards!

Pity the sky does not have more interest. But I can see it was a windy, cloudy night.
