Well spotted and captured. The pitch-black background suits the image very well but has fooled your camera's meter into bleaching out the brighter parts of the picture.

I would suggest using (e.g.) the shadows/highlights tool in PS to pull back some of the detail in the lights. Also the image may benefit from slight cropping from the left to balance the photo and, in addition, cloning out of the shape which can be seen at the top middle left of the picture.

I've uploaded a mod for you which reflects my comments, which I hope help.

hey my friend, i live in chinsurah, first of all i am very happy to meet you and to see an image from chandannagar, it is a beautiful image, no doubt about it, but some points i should say according to my point of view which are as under:-


apparently it is visible that you have cropped the image very tightly, the reflection on the water is just about to be cut, it is better if you give some space for the reflection,

the horizon is slightly missing the target, you can also correct it at the time of post processing but it would be better to be careful about this at the time of shooting, you can also take the help of in camera grid view,

i think it may be a compact camera, i have not found canon 510 as a camera, it should be a printer, but if you have taken the shot with a compact camera, then you should avoid taking any shot in night landscape mode, because in that case, you camera will automatically increase the iso number resulting in a noisy picture as in this case too it is apparent, it is better if you employ landscape mode and take the shot with the help of a tripod or by placing the camera in a sturdy place,

wish you best of luck for your future works...

And I've just noticed that you have two critiques more sophisticated than mine!

It's great subject matter.
