beautiful night shot....lovely light contrast, colours & water reflection (a point to note, the building on the right looks a bit too bright thereby burning much detail....just a friendly opinion)Smile

Composition works well. Following on from the previous comment you could either put a grad over the bright part of the image or take a series of different exposures and blend them together. A much better image would have been to to shoot while there was some light left in the sky, this can vary, but a guide would be to shoot about thirty mins after sunset.

Hi jase,
two possible ways:
1. before capturing, you can bracket the exposure & give more weightage to the light areas, so it will look less bright & the darker areas, you can always use editing to bring out the shadow details to balance the overall exposure;
2. after capturing (without proper bracket exposure as in this case), you can still recover some details of the bright areas in your post processing by selecting the burnt out area (with feathered edge) and reducing the mid-tone value so the bright areas will look darker with more pronounced detail & shadows (without affecting the other part of the picture).
It is always easier to recover details in the underexposed areas than the burnt out areas of the picture
Hope my friendly observations are helpful, best regards.......SmileSmile
