Blue Hour in the Old Town

After yesterday photo got some nice feedback (mainly on Facebook though), it's time for another one taken during that shoot. I took it just before blue hour... well there wasn't golden nor blue hour really as there were boring clouds all over the sky...  still I managed to get some of this blueish light into the shot and I really like how nice the lights of the Old Town look against it.

As for the composition - it was the best I could get with the lens I had with me (Canon 24-105). I would love to separate the Xmas tree and the tower of Royal Palace a little bit but it would result in a column appearing in the frame - and I didn't want that... ok, excuses excuses but I still hope you like the shot :)
