excellent choice of exposure. Very nice composition. I wouldn't change your crop, but I do find the person standing at left distracting. I think the shot woudl be better without him.

The lights certainly say "after dark," but I think the shot would have worked better with less dark space between the various signs.

Earl Abel's looks closed, ironically. THe figure at left adds a lot of interest to the shot. IMage is well balanced and engaging.

I came very close to doing a similar shot. But it is very hard shooting neon lights after dark. The best time I think is just at sunset to get the true colors and true effects. nice work
