Honestly the shot is not compelling, it's a streak shot on a curve with not much compelling subject matter in the rest of the frame.

Don't think it will get on
I agree with Troy. It used to be that relatively simple compositions with streaks of light were an easy acceptance here. However, the night niche has grown, expanded, and risen to higher levels over the last several years thanks to multiple photographers who took an interest in the dark, and now streaks without a compelling composition are kinda meh.

Social Media elevates the absurd and mediocre to a point where they aren't anymore, and that is a tragedy.
