Truly magnificent!!!!! May I ask what camera/lens combo you are using? Your pictures are a work of art, thank you for sharing.
The pictures were not made with a DSLR, but a "simple" digicam - Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LX2. The cam has a Leica lens and a 10 MP sensor in 16:9 aspect ratio. I shoot only in the A (aperture priority) or M (manual) exposure modes. When using A in low light I dial in -1EV exposure compensation, because the cam tends to burn out the highlights.
Most important is the use of a tripod or any other solid camera support.
The second of the two panos above (blue) was shot only about 5 minutes after the first one.
Another 5 minutes later the sky was nearly all black:
(Admiralty and Central - picture actually taken 13 minutes after the blue one).
Thanks for sharing. Beautiful pics.
Great pictures.....what a difference a tripod, some care and pano do for shots like this....very well done.

Nice to see you again here , Markus. Thanks for the outstanding pics
Beautiful. So this was taken with a panorama feature of the camera? Not pieced together from several pictures?
The original shots at 4224x2376 have too much sky above and water below the skyline, so they are cropped to a (roughly) 4000x1300 size, actual format depending on the picture. And finally, just for upping the shots to flickr, a 50% size reduction is applied, so the uploaded size is around 2000x650.
BTW, it's this little cam:
I'd like to use my DSLR, but the job prohibits me from toting around the big gun all the time. The compact cameras have one main disadvantage compared to the DSLRs, thats the tiny sensor. A small sensor makes the images quite "noisy", even at low ISO settings - like the "grain" we used to have on film:
Example of "noise":
Same, but w/o noise (removed in Paint Shop Pro X):
