Please pm me if you want this comment removed - I'm trying to give my honest feedback.
Feels like a first attempt at capturing night scenes, and as such, has a couple of good things going for it. The starry effect on the lights for one, and no shake for another. Aside from those, I don't see any captivating subject or narrative in the picture. Just another road picture as far as I can tell. I don't even know what to make of the title. The cool flash light in the foreground is at odds with the warm lighting in the rest of the pic as well.
Keep shooting and you will come to enjoy night shooting as you improve gradually.

What is the subject of the photo? A McDonalds at night? The bokeh on the lights? It is holding a secret rather than letting the viewer understand what it is say...

Looks like a high ISO 800 or so . there is a grainyness to this picture that spoils the overall effect, Nice concept, but a little lacking in intrest for me.

The corner is not very interesting and the image is blurred.
