Your photo has in itself a frame, a background.... but i think there's a main "character" missing there. It looks quite empty. But the frame and background are nice :) A useful post-processing work to do is removing these little white dots like those you have on the left. It doesn't really change the photo but removes uncontrolled distracting elements. I know some people aren't post-processing fans (it's an easy trap!), but sometimes it's really useful.

I love the composition and the colour in the sky.

Effective use of slow sync flash to bring the foreground to life.

However, the resolution of the photo didn't do justice to the photo. I am not sure it is because of your scanner or something else. Note will be extremely helpful for use to know.

Try to re-post this picture, set the picture at 200dpi and resize the pixel to 800 at its long side.

Hi Eyal,
were you using a tripod here? A tripod is an essential piece of equipment when taking photos in low light. It looks as though a flash was used as well. Nice composition, but unfortunately the image is not as sharp as it should be. Well Captured.

Amazing colors - was it an approaching storm? Although your resolution looks a bit low I still like it very much.
