The subject you has chosen I like very much and I believe it is very interest. A seagull in the foreground presents to us one of the most emblematic monuments of Venice.
I think it's a well balanced composition. The situation of the main subject in the left third of the image, is very successful. At the same time the look of the gull leads the viewer's attention to the building at the background, which helps to us to know the place portrayed. In contrast, the horizon line is not of all leveled, it make lose some points to a promising composition.
The focus is exactly where it should be, neither more nor less, is centered on the protagonist of the picture.
The use of the camera I think it was very good, it is true that with a reflex digital camera, you can to have more chances to play with the f-stops and obturation speed, yet, you've managed to take the picture with the correct exposure without losing information or the lights or the shadows.
The colors and lighting are somewhat muted. Nothing that you can't fix by applying a few simple adjustments in the levels, contrast and saturation of the image. This way your picture will charge with a lot more strength and intensity.
The shallow depth of field that you have used bring much good to your picture, because the main subject is perfectly defined and stands out against the background, which, wisely, you has left out of focus.
I like the atmosphere that you've captured in the image. This gives me a feel evocative of traveling and it enveloping me in a venetian peaceful sunset.
How to improve your photo
Be careful with the frame and pay attention to the horizon line.
Less distracting elements, a better picture you can take.
Harness the magic light of the sunset and does that those colors vibrate more.
