Its a nice night shot. Its shows the location well and the typical landmarks, the bus, the phone box. the underground station sign.

I liker the glow in the red of the bus.

I am tempeted to crop some space on the right, both the remove the small gaggle of people there, and to place the road on a third; and because most of the interest is on the left and centre. I would leve the phone booth in of course.

Looking at the clock face, you might have got away with a slightly faser shutter, just to tone the highlights down a touch, but for Auto, youve done well.

The mod has that crop, and also a rough -1/3 exposure that gives a little more definition to clock.

I prefer this to your previous upload, although it doesn't have the vertical interest I feel that I can explore the frame more easily. There's a clear route for my eye to follow. In the previous shot the blurred foreground railing-tops were a real barrier, here I can move forward. You have actually gone to the opposite extreme in various ways, there's a bit too much empty road space in the foreground, I want to try a more radical crop than Willie's, a square with Big Ben on the extreme right of the frame. That would keep a strong lead-in while reducing the amount of tarmac.

I am fascinated as to where you were standing, I hope on a traffic island! Even 1/25 second is a long time to stand in the middle of a London street!

Assuming that you were somewhere safe, and given that you are managing to hand-hold a fairly slow shutter speed quite steadily, I would like to suggest waiting for an approaching vehicle, preferably a red bus, on the right for some nice motion blur. It would fill the foreground space and add a sense of animation. Have a look at this upload for comparison - this guy also hand-holds!

Crop to follow shortly...
