Jemenai,

My settings were the following for this shot:
Camera: Canon Rebel T3i
Lens: Canon 28-70 f/2.8L
Focal Length: 28mm
Shutter Speed: 15 seconds
Aperture: f/2.8
ISO 3200
Manual Focus to Infinity

My best suggestion is to go out on a few nights and just spend an hour or two taking pictures and learning what works and what doesn't. You're going to need to focus manually and set both your aperture and shutter speed, as well as play around with your ISO speed. While a higher ISO lets in more light, it also makes for a much noisier image, so care needs to be taken not to go too high.

Good luck!

I need to do this...I think ALL photographers need to do this and learn its art. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated :D I know setting your shutter speed and time as well as a good tripod are important, but how do you know? Just try until you learn, or...intuition? PM me if you'd like, it does not tell me when I get replies - they should make that a feature, IMO .
