In reply to James Haskell, Oct 14, 2002

Thanks for the advice. Is there any rule of thumb that I could follow when taking such photos?

Way over-exposed.

There is a tendancy for newcomers to light up nightscene like it
was day. I did it on my first serious nightscene shoot decades
ago. My exposure time was 2 or 3 minutes. The fact is night scene
should look closer to night, with shutter speed closer to several
seconds instead of minutes.

Hi,

These are my first night scenes taken with my D100 using the Nikon
18-35mm lens.

I realised that the photos have a tint of orange . Is this caused
by overexposure or the wrong white balance setting?

The sensitivity settings for both photos are ISO 400 with auto
white balance.

Please kindly advise. Thanks.
