Quite an intriguing photo with almost an air of mystery created perhaps by the darkness and the lack of any human figure. But it doesn't really show the main subject (the steps) very well because of the contrast between the dark and bright areas.
To a degree you can mitigate this by using the shadows/highlights tool as I have done in the mod I've uploaded for you. In addition, some cropping away of the featureless black area to the right of the photo may assist.
Hope this helps.
i agree with carabosse above. so i am trying to give you some extra points. the first bulb is a bit distracting and i guess as you have included that bulb in the image the other part of the image became very dark. it would have been better if you had excluded it. for night photography i think tripod is a must. low shutter speed and low ISO can produce better result. you can also select the darkest area of the image and let the camera do exposure control, press the shutter half way down and then you position your camera( holding the shutter in that way) to take the scene as you want and press the shutter full way down. in this way you can cheat your camera and can get a bright scene.
Hope it helps,
Many thanks for taking the time to make constuctive remarks about this image.
Carabosse I like your mod, you have lightened the scene but in doing so it changes the mood of the image. I think both images have qualities that are unique to the mood being portrayed.
Somnath I take your point about the tripod and thanks for the tip about exposure control. I will try that.
By the way there is mono version of this image in my pf.
