Unfortunately, the over-exposed streetlight ruins it. I think you'd need multiple exposures or maybe hold a card to block the street lamp for much of the exposure. Probably with a multi exposure, you'd catch some flare from the lamp, which might improve the overall photo

Explain to me why the bright light ruins it. Is it because technically you think there should be detail in the completely white part of the light, or is it that you don't like the light as and artistic part of the image, or something else. My point here is that a photo, is a photo, is a photo. People on this forum are not able to move outside the technical constraints that they have learned, and think that showing part of a picture over or under exposed, out of focus, or grainy, is not allowed. I am trying to show this is the wrong approach. One should look at the image, as an image.
