Nice photo Rajiv! I really like night time photography! Takes patience and planning to get them right!

Very nice.

I'd probably subdue the color a bit but that's just personal taste.

If you hand held it, that explains the softness. Great job!

Hand holding shots at night is pretty hard. For me anything less than about 1/15th of a second at full shutter speed gets blurry. And you'll want about 1/40 or 1/50 for a sharp shot. (Thats at full telephoto though, if you zoom out those numbers change)

Try this instead. Using as little zoom as possible and either a tripod or setting the camera on something stable like a fence post or a railing of some kind....Set the camera to M mode...the white balance to auto...the f/ stop as low as the amount of zoom you use will let you go...the ISO to ISO 80... use the timer to set the camera off( this eliminates the shaky picture syndrome)...Then start with a slow shutter speed such as 1/8 of a second and work your way down ...by this I mean shoot a photo then move the shutter speed down one stop...shoot another photo then move it down again untill you get the shot you want! If going in that direction doesn't give you a good shot then move the shutter speed in the faster direction one stop at a time till you get the one you want. This is the same for almost all night shooting except you may want to Play with the f/stop in the same way I'm talking about moving the shutter speed. Patience and moving in increments is the way to go with night or low level light shots! I've never had a lot of luck getting the shots I want by using the Sport or Night time settings. Go with Manual Mode and you'll start to see the difference! Just a few thoughts...Have fun shooting..
