    Welcome Bro.

    Looks blur to me. Next time use a tripod, select a lower aperture and decrease the shutter speed. Experiment and you should get a better photo. Also move around to get the best angle of the towers. Post processing also can be better. As advise by others, night scene is best taken around 6-7pm where there's a nice sunset adding colours to the sky.

    Here's some of my newbie shots of the tower also using a Panasonic FZ5.

    a nice try, angle is quite ok

    maybe take the pic a little earlier, as m3lv1nh0 stated. if u come at sunset, try taking pics from the time the sky turns orange-red to the time when the sun disappears, and the sky will be a nice deep blue

    abt the aperture, try to use a smaller aperture instead, so that more of the pic would be sharp. then, to compensate for the slow shutter speed, use a tripod

    great attempt, and keep shooting

    Point noted. Thanks.

    For buildings, doors and etc, I was told not to snap at the exact centre position of the building itself. puzzled me??

    O, I was just curious why you cropped the left, anyway, you can still place the building at the side without cropping, like zoom out a bit more.

    btw, whether to have the building in the center or not, it really depends, there is not hard rules about this....

    Here is an example. Hope you don't mind, If you do, let me know and I will take it away.

    No problem. Its just to give an example that architecture may not necessary be away from the center......it dependens on how you want the pic to be.

    Happy shooting.
