congrats on a well deserved ribbon
(could it be that you specs have swapped places, ISO 1/8 and shutter 200?)

Great job... I love how the 'restaurant' neon sign in the background isn't lit up. That would have been a major distraction to the shot. Nicely done!

VERY well done shot and excellent perspective. :) In an insanely crowded town, you actually managed to capture and simple and uncluttered shot - great work! The composition is great and the balance between the cool blue neon and warm incandescent light is AWESOME. :D

this is a good sharp shot, the only distraction is the building in the bottom left, I don't no if it would have been possible to take the shot from a lower position, looking a little higher up the tower, and loosing the building on the left, it just looks modern, and out of place, still a very good shot.
