there is no rule saying what ISO or f/ stop is correct. play around with it.

The higher you bump up your ISO, the higher the noise level.
As for landscape shots, a f/8-11 would be fine.
Most importantly, use a tripod.

ISO 100. F-stop 8-11. Same as day landscape.
Get a tripod. It does not matter how long. If you want the people disappear this is a very good setup.

Most will say F8 onwards. Photography mag recommends f2.8 and iso 400. There's no right or wrong, experiment to your liking. I prefer >f8-22 and iso 200

if you have a tripod (which you should for night landscape), keep the ISO at 100. aperture really depends. optimized sharpness would be around f8-f11, although you may have to adjust depending on available light, the DOF required etc. There's no exact rule as it really depends on what you're shooting, where you're shooting, what lens and body etc.

take a shot and adjust from there. don't be afraid even if the shot turns out bad even only after you realise it at home on the computer. at least you learn from it and know how you can prevent the same mistakes again.

The concept of ISO and f stop is still the same irregardless u shooting day or night, except to note the longer exposure time at night.

There is no "magic formula" or "exact settings". Every shot is different, every scene has different lighting conditions, everyone wants a different effect.

I always recommend as low ISO as u'd be mounting it on a tripod and aperture around f/8 or f/11. But that's just me, go experiment it yourself. :)

Just play with the settings, usually from F8- F22 @ ISO 100. rigid tripod is a must because you deal with slow shutter speed. Dont use Spot metering while doing nightscape photography. bring also mosquito repellant.)
