    Your photo looks blur (the durian). Did you use a tripod??? And it seems just a tad overexposed to me...

    Night shots seldom look nice when shot in high ISO. YOu could have placed the camera on a platform, used ISO 100, and shot with a timer. I could see some hand-shaking here (esplanade not sharp).

    Composition wise, the sky could have been excluded(nothing there), show more reflection in the water, include the Esplanade and crop away the right building.

    Color saturation can be increased, a little more contrast.........

    I have to admit that I don't know how to compose any nice night shots.

    But the tilt here is too obvious. Also, you could have tried placing the "shoreline" as the 1/3 mark.
    As for the handshake, you could have used a faster shutter speed by increasing your ISO or even find a support to steady yourself if possible.

    It's also slightly over-exposed in my opinion. The white balance is also too warm.

    I did a quick fix of your pic to see what could be done:
