photos of traffic try F16 and expose enuff to get full streaks on ya frame
for buildings...depends on how far...for example...f3.5 at 1s if u takin fullerton from esplanade roof

2. matrix metering
3. f8 or f5.6
4. bracket the exposure by bracketign the shutter speed

yah tripod is a must. Trust the metering and bracket if you feel uneasy. To capture light streaks you need a long shutter speed.

Try playing with your "bulb" mode with a lockable cable release and f/22... can try for like 15-30 sec exposures.
