Seems a little oversharp, but that's appropriate for a postcard.

I like the bougainvillaea, but the tower is distracting IMO.

It seems obvious that the main postcard subject is the Hollywood sign. However, the Hollywood sign is such a small part of this image. The composition doesn't work. The red flowers on the tree dominate. The center of the image makes you focus on the radio tower. I think the sign needs to dominate, probably look for a different angle where you can compose the Hollywood sign with the hill and be able cut out the radio tower for sure. Maybe try a vertical shot with the sign toward the upper third and lower third with the homes/studios below to convey that ordinary folks are looking up and "dreaming" of being Hollywood stars.... Maybe look for an angle maybe miles toward your left. Its looks like from the overlap of the letters that you are way to the right of center of the sign. So my critique would be try a different angle and try a vertical shot.

The combination of vibrant color and rather bland background isn't very effective. The cell tower and satillite dishes are also a distraction. This would work as a political statement though if one chose to comment on nature vs modern life.

The sky is a little bland but I do like the flowers.
