In my opinion, most of the architecture photography shots turn out the best during the blue hour. The blue hour is the period of twilight each morning and evening when the sun is a significant distance below the horizon and the residual, indirect sunlight takes on a predominantly blue hue.
In order to take a pic during the blue hour, I had to use my tripod and longer shutter speed. I was playing around with settings for couple minutes, and learned that shutter speed at 8 seconds and aperture stopped down at f13 would do the trick! It also produced an interesting effect on the street lights and tail lights of the cars.
Since I don’t have a Tilt and Shift lens, I used my wide angle Canon lens and did a bit of perspective correction later in Photoshop, as well as some curves/levels adjustments.
