    Taken from Granville Island.

    Canon A75, both pics @ ISO50, f/8, and no photoshop at parents so only a quick levels tweak using the gimp and cleaned up a bit. First shot is 10 seconds I think, and the second is 6:

    Nice.
    You should've tried an 8" exposure. It's probably would've been perfect.

    why set the ISO to 50? Shouldn't set it towards the max for low light situations?

    ISo400 shots have much more noise. If he's doing a longer exposure (i.e. not a hand-held quick snap) then you might as well leave it at ISO50 and let the camera expose away.

    Long exposure > high ISO

    I can take 16 second exposures with my camera, and at ISO50 they are noise-free.
    Or as noise-free as a Canon P&S can get.
