I've seen this comment from you before on a number of photos. In this particular case I think it under-appreciates some of the challenges of night photography and in fact, if this is successful at all, it is because of composition, perspective, lighting. Time to raise your own game, IMO.

Is this the MGM Grand hotel in Vegas? Very nice night shot.

Night time photography can be difficult. Good control here with your exposure.

I like the colours and the solidity of the image. The edge of the bottom bowl being nipped off is compositionally annoying (to me).

I would struggle with how to frame a shot like this. Well done.
