For me the image looks as if there is potentially a very nice image in there but it's not quite right, the buildings in the background need to pop but currently unfortunately blend into the background. A bit more contrast in the foreground may help as well :)

:agree:
Crop out the first lamp post and trash can and tone down the other street lights. That will help the "lean" and give you more wiggle room to bump your contrast. Nice view.

Shoot, learn and share. It will make you a better photographer.

Have to agre with John, the potential is there and you are so close but so far, take it into photoshop use curves, find a nice gentle S curve then just play with it a bit, tug the line a little more until you see what you want, alternatively and this what I would do, dodge it, go to those buildings and carefully work your way through them, make them pop, then lose that first lamp post as it does look as though it is about to fall over, please repost it and I bet it will look brilliant.

Late to the party and have say :agree: with PP- the front lamp is throwing the contrast off. As well as the buildings blending in. I think, imo with some more contrast it will be a lovely shot!
