Went on Photography trip to Chinese Garden which is just 2 stations from where I live. Went there around 5.30 in the evening with a friend and by the time we returned it was completely dark. So got a chance of clicking in the dusk as well as try my hands on low light photography. I brought a tripod from back home - cost me a 1000 bucks (INR). The night clicks were awesome so was the garden. A very nice, quite and serene environment away from any sound or pollution with a small lake surrounding it. A good place to spend a casual evening...

All clicks after this are taken after dusk with the tripod, so keep an eye on the shutter speed. I Intentionally kept the ISO low as there were no moving subjects that demanded fast shutter speed. The live view comes to rescue when it comes to focusing - which is very difficult manually and automatic focus failed (to focus at the right spot) almost half of the time.
