Try using lower ISO for night shots, something like ISO 80 or 100(lowest possible)

Aah, this seems to be the trick. I used 400ISO thinking it will be able to capture more in the low light condition. Shutter speed used was 1sec.

thanks TSK.

Nopes am a poor man wanted to pick up one and haven't yet been able to. But have used the Sigma 10-20, Tokina 12-24 and the Tokina 11-16 and found the Sigma to be the best bet.
So sooner or later I should be flaunting my pics taken with a Sigma .

Hopefully this is the last of the lot I have on HDR's. Used Photomatix again, I somehow lots patience during PP and stopped at this. Any ideas from the guru's on how to make it better ?

Agree with Rudra on that. Specialy clouds are overexposed and lost details. I think you should try and getmore blue into the sky.

But the pic is lovely.Pretty landscape.

Followingis the image of Srisailam dam at night.
