    I wouldn't say f/22 will give you terrible results, but I do feel that using f/16 and below gives an improvement in sharpness.

    I would encourage you to question whatever advice you get in future, and understand the reason why things are done a certain why... don't trust strange people who come up to you and offer advice!

    hahaha me no senior la...

    If you do happen to meet me at one of those outings, by all means pose me a question or 2 and I'll try my best to help. In the meantime happy shooting and learning. You can do it!
    Perhaps start a photo thread in the land/cityscapes section, and get more feedback on your shooting from there. Post only 1 or 2 photos at a time, so you get focused feedback.

    Yes TS.. don't let ZCA's look fool you... he is more senior than most people think... LOL... He has all the answers you need. Go look for him...

    Ok jokes aside, sign up for one our newbie shoots and learn. In the meantime, start reading and learning. Here are some very good links to landscape photography for you to learn... and before long you will start taking pictures like this:

    First thing you need to learn is that there is never any fixed settings. But if you really want to know the settings you can just look at the exif of my pic.

    And have you started reading the links I gave you?

    I think I detect someone looking for 'magic' settings or numbers. There is no fixed settings for every shot as the light is always changing. EXIF refers to the data with the picture, which are ISO, shutter speed, focal length, aperture, WB, etc.

    Nono...Don misunderstand me. I know there is no fixed setting for all shot. Just like every day we tend to have different kind of weather...light...I just wish to find out more on the estimated setting and slowly increase or decrease on those setting

    I know how to exif the photo Liao. I need to download the photo and use a software to read thru computer. Rite?

    I was just saying for the fun of it only lah. For estimated setting, I believe what you need to do, is to shoot more. I myself also still cannot really get the settings on first try or first 2. So I keep trying and adjusting.

    Curious why you think that f/22 is good for night scenes.
    Diffraction yes...
    I have came across somewhere where Bryan Peterson mentioned that he shoot at f22 for landscape.... can't remember why.... gotta search for it again.

    Was it on film? I remember f/22 was quite regularly used by film landscape photogs... I guess the diffraction was less severe with the larger format.
    But more than that, I think we're being too paranoid about it

    Hmmmm, if you totally don't know why, then at least the auto mode gives you a 'reference' point.
    But once you form your foundation of knowledge, you should not require the 'auto' mode on the camera It's good to have though...
