OK, the picture is quite noisy. It was taken with the Pana LZ2way past the sunset.The lense was at full zoom (6X) so I had to increase the ISO to 400. However, I still like its silhouette against the orange colors of the sky.

It's a real joy to see nice pastel colours, including the complemantary silhouette, dominating the whole image, knowing that we are observing just a temporary moment.
It's very clear why you had to increase the ISO due to the full zoom which increases the F value by default. Yet I also see that you had used a considerably high exposure value which is 1/160 for low light situations. Assuming that this shot is handheld,still you could drop it to 1/60 instead of increasing the ISO value that much.Perhaps you were driving or sth,which I may not know. Could you please explain why?

Thanks for your comments, bahadir. Although the LZ2 produces great images, it's a very limited point-and-shoot camera, with absolutely no manual control. Therefore, I'm limited to adjusting the ISO hoping that the camera will make the best aperture and shutter adjustments. Obviously it did not in this case. Limitations like this is my incentive to sell it on eBay.I bought a Canon A610 not too long agoand now the H1. I think I'm good to go with these two.
