I posted a night still-life photo and it was clear that it left a lot to be desired. Let's try this one. Glass Sigma 70-300mm F/8 , 8 seconds.ISO 100

be aware of lights in the frame when shooting at night.. if you notice the lights along the bottom of the frame are very obvious and very distracting.. also, there is just a lot going on in this photo.. its really too much, there is no visual anchor, so no real strong place for your eyes to rest.. this is further emphasized by the myriad of reflections on everything.. this combines to confuse the eye and cause it to dart about..

next time, simplify.. pick 1-3 good strong elements.. divide your frame into 1/3rds both horizontally and vertically and try to place your main elements on the outer thirds.. preferrably the intersection of the outer 1/3 vertically and the bottom or top 1/3 horizontally..

thanks for sharing and keep on shooting.. best regards.. -dustin
