Great shot, I especially like the stillness I get when looking at the photo. Anyway, congrats on the 6.2 score, it's good!

I got the same exact "star" effects on my nightshots using F8 (star in discussion - top-right lamps) and I wonder if using a larger aperture fixes that - havent got the chance to try it out.

I think you tried to cover too much. It is a beautiful building, but people, cars take away from the total atmosphere. I think you should try to reshoot it focusing on part of the building only, or... wait for the people to desapear ;) The lamp on the left is unecessary.
