Night shots are not best taken at night, but at twilight, usually around 15-25 minutes after sunset is ideal, slightly later (upto 50 minutes) if you are shooting towards the sunset as the sky is much brighter.

There is more ambient light around and you basically will achieve more detail in your shadows. The sky will appear as a very deep blue (very attractive indeed) and far more appealing than ink black. If it's been a decent sunset, you'll also have reds, yellows and oranges in your sky too.

When it's completely dark, you do suffer with highlights burning out due to the long exposures and it's not great and can only be really be rescued with HD.

Of course I don't need to tell you that a sturdy tripod (or good support) is essential, and stick to ISO 100 with an aperture of around F8 (for most images). The shutter speed will vary, but will be between 4 and 8 seconds as a general rule.

Check out some of my twilight photos and let me know what you think.
The Twilight Zone!

I hope this helps anyway.

Andrew.
