Thanks for liking this. The jury is out on it for me..

First off, you can only capture this view by standing in a very small area around 4 square feet. It would be nice if the lamppost on the left was forming more of a frame, that the signs were missing, that the right hand side was clutter free etc. Of course, if my camera had a shift lens, I could have moved right, and shifted left, but they don't do shift lenses that long. I could have used a 300mm, but then I would lose all the shops and bars. And finally, gaining 10 feet in height would have worked, but putting up scaffolding isn't a sane option, as it would have blocked a road, and I don't have any to hand.

Anyway, it's better than my most recent published stories of drug abuse and car crashes, or in one case both.
