This is the Singapore Arts Centre (centre/middle of the pic) at night from the river boat

The 2009 reflective orbs in celebration of the new year can be seen at the waters edge

Pete's Cam Photography Tip:
When taking night scenes, you will get a steadier/crisper image if you find a solid surface to rest the camera on (I don't have a tripod, so have to make use of my surroundings...) - that way I eliminate blurred and fuzzy photos.

Another Photography Tip:
For night shots, (once you've got a sturdy base) is to take off the flash activation and press the self timer button.
That way, once you press the shutter button there will be a pause of a few seconds before the camera takes the pic.
Why?
If you are not holding the camera when the pic is taken, you further reduce the chances of any shaking in the resulting pic...

Hope this is of use to someone...
