Cropping helps direct my view and the lighter building in the foreground makes it clear which is your subject. I don't find the building interesting enough as the subject. Seems a bit blurry - perhaps crisper would have captured me more.

Interesting photo. That line of street lamps gets a lot of attention. I like the varied colors of the buildings.

Appears out of focus. Good composition.

What looks like water/ice and snow makes for an interesting foreground addition. Unfortunately the vehicles take away something, and with them being so distant and soft as well they really dont help much at all. The lights seem a little overexposed too. I like how the buildings seem to go up higher with each one, like stairs.

Very pretty. I like the reflections of the light on the water, and the effect of the ice on part of the pool. I think less exposure, or some darkening with levels in the post processing, would have made this a more dramatic night shot.

Focus appears to be a bit off.

Lacking interest.
