    Me again. I just got my T2i on Monday. One of the things I really look forward to doing is shooting night shots with no flash. I took this shot with several different settings on the camera and this is the one that turned out the best however, I have a feeling it could be better. Thanks in advance.

    Use a tripod and use a longer exposure while decreasing the ISO. It will reduce the amount of noise and make it sharper.

    EDIT: Also make sure to use timer and maybe mirror lockup to give it some extra sharpness.

    jarmo nailed it.
    for natural light night photography a tripod is key. i generally try not to hand hold anything slower than 1/60.
    drop that iso back down to reduce noise.
    try bumping up your aperature to get that nifty star effect on light sources.
    post up results. :D

    What you used:

    It's ok you're learning...
    What you should use next time:

    Shooting Mode: Manual
    Shutter Speed: 30 seconds
    Aperture Value: f/16
    ISO Speed: 100

    Maybe 20-30 seconds at f/11-f/16 anyway... try different stuff.

    But, a tripod is a must have. Even a cheapo tripod is better than no tripod..
