Oahu Skyline

I was watching the day come to a rest on the edge of Magic Island on Oahu as the lights inside the buildings were coming on and the sky was turning a nice deep blue color.  I had originally wanted to get take this photo of the Oahu Skyline during the blue hour but I noticed that the sky still had a nice hint of pastel colors. 

I thought it would be cool to accentuate the pastel colors while the city lights were turned on so I over-exposed the shot and left the shutter open for a few seconds.  That gave this picture a surreal feel as the city lights at dusk clash with the bright sky.  I am not sure if it works or not, but it plays a trick on the visual mind for long enough to make it interesting.  What do you think?
