Open discussion - what looks good in a nightscape?

What's your experience? Suggest some stuff for my new client - regular -sized residential lot, raised bed in the front yard facing the street.

What plants/trees/shrubs have you noted that get a good effect being lit up at night, and in what way?

Discussion not limited to plants, though. Thoughts/pictures of water fixtures, statuary, etc, welcome.

I'll start. Japanese maples of the correct size, uplit, with not too much light (usually a 20w halogen fixture is plenty) seems like a good specimen item.

How 'bout shrub roses, chinese junipers, and ornamental grasses - and water features? Any thoughts?
