They say there is light at the end of the tunnel. I wonder if that's it...

Greetings Joffrey,well it is to some that's for sure,but now for your image.I like how you have framed the church using the two buildings stuctures to lead the eye down the narrow lane, to the illuminated tower of the church,I like the content of this night scene,it has interest & a mood to it.
If your not concerned about noise in an image, then my point of noise being quite evident wont be of interest to you,but if you are may I suggest a much longer shutter speed & an ISO of about 100 with an F/11-F/22 exposure,might help reduce it, as well as add sharpness to it.I take it you used a tripod? or a stable platform like a car roof to help steady the camera & prevent camera blur.TFS

Well got to agree with some part of RSK critique, tho personnaly I don't pay much attention to grain, in fact, in many shot, I do appreciate the texture it give to a shot.

But this shot do suffers of many flaws. Certains point you may want to pay attention to. Exposure wise, it's overexposed by a few stops. You're loosing your highlights, which is the area that constitute your main point of interest. You should use manuel mode for more control. You don't have a tripod, a higher Asa would have able you to get less camera mouvement.

Color balance is too red...your color balance should have been set on thungten. While panning you need to take a closer look at perspective. you're line lean toward the right corner. Not only you need to pay attention of your vertical pan, but also your horizontal one. Just details, but would make all the difference. Proportion, I find that you should have considered to included more of the foreground, so the eye is compel to go for the chapel, here the eye wants to go up, getting away from your main subject. Keep in mind, pratice makes perfect...)))
