If you're new to night time photography, keep it simple to start with. Folks will have you buying lighting gear and multiple flashes and you still won't be certain to get a good shot. First, I'd advise people not to jump into niht time photography before they are ready. Do you have a decent camera tht you know how to use? And, yes, that's two questions. If so, find some nice scenes with good natural lighting. Use a cable release or remote or set your camera on a delay so there will be no camera shake. On stationary subjects, take losts of shots using lots of different settings. But I'd suggest the lowest ISO possible to sstill get the shot. And watch that focus. Your shot looks a little soft. Could be camera shake or lack of focus.

Main thing is to be patient, have fun and practice a lot!
