The Magic Cloth Photography Trick
The Magic Cloth is wonderful for capturing reflections or the foreground in a night scene. The number 1 prerequisite for using the Magic Cloth is having a long-exposure, so you can control the exposure to different parts of the scene, without having to put filters on. If you are in an amazing location like this, the only additional equipment you need is card or a straightedge fabric, although I have found that a jacket sleeve works well.
