This photo is beautiful! I particularly like the fact that the lake brings nice colors and some light to the bottom of the photo, in a place that usually is predominantly black with just the silhouette of some geographical elements. But I am also wondering how you managed to take this picture at 1/30s f/16 and ISO 160. How did you manage to gather so much light from this scene (from the metadata at the bottom of the page)?

Thanks man :). Your right, the metadata must have got lost in translation when I uploaded it, strange... I checked the original and I shot it at ISO 5000, 30 sec, f/1.4 with the Canon 50mm f/1.4.

Thank you very much for sharing the metadata. I can't wait to try to take night pictures like that: your picture is now for me a great model to follow, it is beautiful.

No problem man. I always encourage fellow photographers to do night photography, it's good to hear your enthusiasm. For me, the fun doesn't start until the sun has set. :D
As a tip, having a good Histogram, where the bulk of the readout is on the white end and not the black, can really improve the amount of detail and reduce noise, get as far away from underexposing as possible, then readjust in RAW editor. I did a basic write-up about the Histogram here if your interested: [link] Username: Brisco
Apologies if you already know this stuff :) Happy shooting!
