I was thinking physical star filter. In the 90s I knew many friends who were big on star filters. Anyway, let's see what the photographer says.

I do not think there is a filter involved. Its the lens stopped down.
But all in all, a very high quality pic.

Yup, even I think so and was about to post the same. There are 18 rays of light and the Nikon 85mm 1.8 have 9 blades. So probably Sparkled is using a Nikon system.

You are right. Long exposure with high f number gives this kind of effect.

You may be right, I have never seen so many perfect looking rays of lights in a photograph, so I thought it may be a filter effect.

Yeah, that picture looks very good with almost perfect rays. I think the same can be achieved with photoshop also but I dunno how. Although I've never used the starburst filter but I think that will make every source of light as starbursts. But here only the bright pointed lights are becoming stars. Hope SPARKled will soon clarify the confusion.

BTW, DAutobot's first picture, the colors are looking awesome. Only I wished that you didn't had a centered horizon composition.

Thank you Kaushik. I preferred to take it this way since the reflections appear completely.

Here are a couple more shots from Sydney.

Well, if you liked it yourself then nothing beats it, we shoot for ourselves most of the time(unless it's for a client). Liked the 2nd shot of the Opera house(it's Sydney opera house right?) and the bridge. You are choosing the right time to shoot night shots as there is still some color left in the sky.

Some P&S's have manual modes which you can use to be creative. The pics I posted were taken with a Kodak Z712 IS using manual settings..

On the other hand, I have seen a large number of people using their high-end DSLR's in "Auto" mode

i did try my hand at manual mode but was not successful in taking pix like the way you guys have.
Rehaan did help me learn how to take macro shots in my P&S and i've used that extensively to take pix of my scale model cars . thanks rehaan.

these night shots, I've no clue. I've just gone 1 step ahead and got me a tripod. the super flexible beads type (don't know the technical term).

as long as i'm asking queries, might as well ask if i can adjust the shutter speed on my canon SD870IS.
