I like the mood here. The wet streets are great, and the shot works with the long light streak, though it could have worked just as well without. It seems like the image is slightly overexposed, so that a lot detail gets lost in the dark. How long was this, about 30 seconds? 20 might have done the trick, too. This is no criticism, I've been doing a lot shots like this, so I'm just trying to learn. I love working with a low ISO and tiny aperture so that I get lovely stars around street-lights, but I have found that it is quite easy to actually overexpose. Would love to know your settings on this one.
Anyway, high marks from me.

Thanks for the comments, I'm pretty unflappable when it comes to critiques being a graphic designer I'm used to both the positive and negative and in the end it is all good.
I took this image 19 years ago at 5am in Montreal - I pretty much used Tri-X 400 at that time. I believe this shot was 30 seconds but I also did several other exposures, I chose this one because of the light a passing bus left. I think that some of the lack of detail is due in part to film processing because I always had some difficulty when processing my own film even though I was diligent about the chemicals and temp, I eventually gave up doing them myself.

This is a wonderful shot, the starlight effect from the streetlights is fantastic. I'm a little concerned that the strength of the light maybe took somehting away from the reflections in the water on the road, which couls have made it even more dramatic. You could conceivably have gone darker.
