    Okay,

    I don't want to hijack this thread, but can someone explain the mechanics behind night shots like this? I'm going crazy trying to figure them out.

    All you need is a tripod and a slow shuter (long exposure time).

    contax. with 50mm ziess planar

    to the guy asking how... just tripod it, get a remote shutter release, and find some interesting scenes... experiment with shutter times to get what you want...

    i just picked up a 8point star filter... should be fun for night.

    to be honest, day shots just bore me now... night is where its at..

    thanks for the comments!

    Those are some nice clear night shots. What camera did u use? tripod? The last one I especially like. Nice composition.

    Seems like everytime I try to do night shots, people seem to look more suspicious than in the daytime..
