Back to Venice for one Week so. Here night shot of San Giorgio di Maggiore. First of different point of view of the same subject.
“Although it was not which a range of rifle has, the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore wrapped itself, in my eyes, of a diaphanous atmosphere which more gently drew on the horizon its lines, without their anything to remove from their smoothness. The church of Palladio, the red and white barrel of its bell-tower, that the projected shade of the cupola made, by opposition, to shine of a blow of light, its elegant pinnacles and the colonnade of its gantry, triumphed in this impalpable gauze that the Barbarians of North call fog and who deserves this name only on their premises… And, under the rosy sky, the strange lagoon kept its very pale green - hardly made iridescent - on the large reducing tablecloth, of a small money whole clapotement which cut, by intervals, the slender black silhouette of its gondoles.” Léopold the Gironde - Memories of Italy 1907

This is an excellent nightshot (I am a nightshot lover). Great composition and light managment. The light reflection on the right and the tower on the left, create a very balanced composition. Congratulaitons!

Very good balance between the tower on the left side of photo and light reflection on the right. Almost square format looks good here.
I think white balance is not very good here - orange is the only color in the photo. That's typical problem in many night photos posted here at TE. It would probably look much better with white balance set to incandescent light. If you have RAW file, it's still possible to correct while doing raw conversion.
Also some more sharpening would be good here.
