    Hey everyone,
    I am planning on taking some nights shots of the Cincy skyline tonight, with my tripod, nikon D70, 18-70mm, and 70-210mm lens. What else do I need and do you have any suggestions for strategy or good hints? Should I leave it in night program mode or switch it to manual? In manual, should I use center weighted, matrix, or spot metered exposure?

    Wide aperture, right? Thanks everyone for your help. I am just checking to see if I am missing anything. I will post pics tonight immediately when I get back for you all to critique.

    Tungsten WB is key. Try to keep the light source out of the frame. Unless something is moving; I say stop down to ƒ8 or above.

    Oops... just read the skyline part. Skyline shots have the light as being key. Go for a lot of different colored lights.

    there is a little hill, or a mountain, on the east side of cinci, near the river, i highly recommend going to the top of that, there are some great views from there. of course you have already taken your pics by now...
