Hi everyone,

I am currently trying to use the dpq series for night shots, and it feels very difficult.
Maybe it's a problem with my settings, maybe it's because there are too many light sources in the city.

I have no idea...

Based on the high scene DR (lights vs dark) the posted image is pretty good with only 0.4% "blown" pixels. Your choice of which highlights were allowed to "blow" is fine with me.

Did you mean to use f/9 perhaps to get a good DOF? And was the 1 sec shutter value deliberate so as to get motion-streaks from the vehicle lamps?

The answers to those two question would help with any further advice.

Pity about the passing thing at bottom left ...

Thanks! Appreciate it!

Because I haven't taken an overnight scene, I don't know if the "blown" pixels here are acceptable.
Next time I will try to get stronger motion-streaks from the vehicle lamps.

I also found another reference from a similar perspective on the Internet.

I found it difficult for me to shoot "star-shaped" street lights. Once my exposure time is too long, the street lights will be overexposed.
Do I need a light filter?
