I can't tell for sure if you have done a special post processing on the houses to make them appear the same colour, but the result is interesting, as what is standing out is the boat, the sign and the lantern.
Very efficient composition, with this canal naturally dragging our eyes into your image, following the water flow. This is a captivating place that I would love to visit one day.

This is a high quality picture with lots of interest. The POV and vertical format with the canal curving into the distance is a very good composition. The small boat and the figure in blue close to the blue writing makes a lovely centre of interest. Excellent!

I really love the mutted color here, make it feel like an image from a long time ago, it give the essence of old and sentimental and nostalgic.
The water town looks charming, and the atmosphere of the oriental exotic mood is very strong. My sincere complements.
