My first night photography pics

By far not the best night shots but these are my First night shots using my Dolica AX620B100 62-Inch Proline Tripod and Ball Head

I used about a 30sec exposure with 400 ISO and 5.6 f stop.

I learned how to shoot night shots from this book I got for Christmas: Creative Night: Digital Photography Tips & Techniques. A great read with tons of night shots with tips on how to recreate specific types of scenes.

What do you think?

I'm no expert on night photography but I like your shots. Thanks for mentioning the book. The only night pics I've taken are of the moon, which turned out well I think.

I agree- astro can be great with the skyline in the frame as you get that glow with long exposures.
