Well done, Dolna-

Yes, a tripod, a low ISO setting, and a long exposure are all essential to photos like that. Nice job.

I used the Panorama Assist in the SCN mode, then stitched it in Silkypix. I forgot to set it to RAW, so the panorama was shot as JPG. Fortunatelly it did not need PPd.
I did not have a tripod with me so I used the railing on the side of the hill to steady my camera - same for the fountain shot, I steadied it against a pole. You should use a tripod for these.
AWB, stabilizer mode 1, Flash off, of course. The camera set at 100 ISO - the rest of it is just patience as it does take a while to get each shot.

If you are taking single shots, then try the night portrait Night Scenery or Creative (where you can toggle the f stop) option - they will shoot at ISO100, which you will want for crisp image. Using Illumination will set it to ISO 800 and give you a grainy photo.

Thanks for the shooting info. It is encouraging to know that you didn't use a tripod but managed to be steady enough with something else for support. I will have to find something interesting here to try for some night shots.

I agree with VncvrIslandGirl, when I saw your picture originally I assumed it was taken with a tripod, and long exposure shots.. Can you upload a higher res version of the picture? I would love to see more of the details..

My FZ100 is arriving tomorrow, and I can't wait.

Outstanding, awesome, and brilliant, are the words that spring to mind. Incredible and fantastic are others..... But for now this little word fits fine..
