I shot a few nice images last night of Manhattan skyline.

Using Z3, I will also put Exif data below image.
Perhaps someone could suggest a way to improve the sky. The image is actually pretty nice, in my opinion, but I'm sure it could be a lot better. Specifically, the ambient light in the sky. Or if anyone has any tips on post-processing, I have Photoshop and I am ok with it. Not a pro, but been using it for about 10 years.



Relevant Exif information:

Shutter Speed: 2"
Aperture: F3.5
Sensitivity: ISO 100
Brightness Value: -2.3
Max Aperture of Lens: F2.8
Lens Focal Length: 5.9mm
Metering Mode: Multi-segment

If there is anything important missing, please let me know. I am having the darndest time with the Minolta DiMAGE viewer software, it does not allow me to copy Exif info to the clipboard :-(

Perhaps one thing to try next time is lower the image resolution. Any suggestions welcome please.

Here's one more sample image showing the same problem.
That's all I will post for now, as these images best illustrate my dillema.

I spent 30 minutes to find a thread in the dpreview forums where a Canon guy demonstrated how to fix an image in PhotoShop. No success, too many messages and couldn't remember good keywords.

I have the pics, however. Here's the source:

Wow, that sure is a nice blue sky for a nighttime!

Any thoughts specifically on how to avoid getting the noise to begin with?

Aperture/Shutter/ISO/White Balance/etc. settings would be appreciated.
