Great capture. I like the fact you waited for a car to come up the road.
When looking at a photo for the first time I pay attention to where my eye is lead. Is it drawn and held in the most interesting parts of the photo, or are there distractions which pulled my eye past the focal point to check out some other area, only to find it disappointingly less interesting?
The problem I have with your shot as framed is the bright contrast of the sky and the "accelerated" perspective spacing of the power poles on the right pulling me past the nicely unified focal points of buildings, sunset and car on the highway off into less interesting territory and then out of the frame. My solution for that is to crop and add a mat to limit the rightward eye path and find ways to make the more important elements of the storyline contrast more.
I desaturated and lightened the buildings and foreground a bit to make them contrast more in tone and color with the sky. I also selectively sharpened them a bit.
I cropped in on the right to eliminate the gap between tree and edge of frame making it more of a "bookend" framing element than stand alone element. The tree on the right and the pole on the left work to frame the two poles in the center which frame the buildings. There isn't the tendency to get pulled to the left past all that more interesting stuff. My goal with the crop was to invite the scan left to find the car headlights, up to see the sky, then back down to check out the buildings in a triangular pattern. Hopefully they will find that interesting enough to repeat the triangular pattern again. Note where the triangle is? About 1/3 of the way in from the left side, a compositional "sweet spot". I didn't crop that way out of any slavish devotion to the "rule" of thirds but because I liked the overall balance and flow of eye movement in the frame better than way. It's a "feel" thing, not mechanical/measurement thing. But more often than no when it feels good it also fits the convention which works to create dynamic eye movement in photographs.
