His settings is on his EXIF
You must excuse a vegetarian for being different :p

Not everybody knows what EXIF is or how to find it, but in case someone doesn't you have to download the photo and check its properties (right click on the file then "properties" then "details").
Alternatively you can see it in Photoshop (FILE, FILE INFO, SECTION - EXIF).

Got examples? You need a tripod and a longer shutter speed (like 1,3,10,15,20,30 seconds). This will also make your photos look brighter but at night that's a good thing.

you can start your own thread, post a photo to ask for help.

without seeing a photo, everyone can only making wild guess, wouldn't help you much.

One more way is, if you are using Firefox, you can add the add-on for Exif Viewer and could view directly during browsing, not sure if there is any add-on for IE.

To check the EXIF details Exif definition of course.

It's fine to ask, when it's not available but a lot quicker to learn how to check and find out yourself .

think you misunderstood him, I guess he meant is why download a not very interesting picture to see what is the setting for?

not why need to download the software to view exif.

Singapore humour/sarcasm always have me in stiches :-D

Hey vegatable, not everyone has time to write EXIF down at your convenience. If you are interested go download and find out as instructed!

Din know there're so many vegetarians here! Or vegetables?
Anyway, the photos are really good for a first attempt at night photography!
I like the durian the best.

Yeah those shots are pretty good for first time night shots, what kind of lens is that? Looks pretty fast. I see you've also used ND filters, how do you find them?
