Night shots are not best taken at night, but at twilight, usually around 15-25 minutes after sunset is ideal, slightly later if you are shooting towards where the sun has set.

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

When it's completely dark, you do suffer with highlights burning out and it's not great and can only be rescued with HD. Of course I don't need to tell you that a tripod (or good support) is essential, and stick to ISO 100.

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

I hope this helps anyway.

Andrew.
