It is very difficult to shoot a good night photo in Luzern because Luzern is a rather "dark" city, if I may say so.. there are no special lightings..
or, maybe, it is because mountains surround it?
In any case, also, night is the best time to shoot photos in Luzern: no tourists walking around, no crowds, nobody blocks the way in front of your camera.. When you are in Luzern, please, DO go out for a photo-hunt after 11 PM! better - after midnight :)
In the background: Jesuitenkirche (Jesuit Church) - the first large sacral Baroque church in Switzerland; it was constructed in 1666 by Father Christoph Vogler for the Jesuits.

NB. Sorry! :( Hot time for work before the summer starts "officially".. No time for commenting activity, just the time to post a photo..

Hi Elena, I like this great night shot of this place in town with interesting buildings in the background, nice and interesting composition, well captured in this interesting image, with good sharpness, light, color and quality. Very good job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good night and happy week.
Best wishes from southern Spain.

The photo is crisp and clear. The lighting is very good too.
I would have moved the composition a bit to the right though to show less of the river and more of the stone street. The trash bin is also a distracting element.
In general, very nice shot.

What a beautiful night capture this! You have selected a superb POV for taking that image with really fantastic quality due to the long exposure. Very well done!

Like the night capture, not at all dark with good light management (lamps like stars) and a good composition with the bike at the front and the illuminated church at the back
Well done, congrtas

Hello Elena - I love this night shot, the colours are off-beat and arresting and you have managed the exposure well. The soft drift of the boat contrasted with the crispness of the bike make for an interesting FG and the composition is well balanced and begs for more than a quick look.

It's a brilliant night shot in an excellent composition.
The lights of the illuminated church and the houses along the quay are well reflected in the water.
The bike and the boat make an attractive foreground and add more depth to the picture.
Very beautiful with the lights in star shape.
Best regards, Paul

Belle version l'on dirait presque une N/B, Bon POV, j'aime les lumières en forme d'étoiles, les reflets, le dynamiste du bateau légèrement flou, la bicyclette en bon cadrage, belle et intéressante composition

cercherò di seguire il tuo consiglio, in modo da fare anch'io una foto bella come la tua, spero di trovare anche la bicicletta, altrimenti dovrò portarla da casa.
Sei riuscita a creare una bella atmosfera, mi piace.

Ciao dear Elena
Oooh this is delightful. The lone cycle is a superb element and your title does well to use it. I love the silver and gold light, the stunning reflections and the details in the architecture. A gorgeous photo, superbly composed and realised.
