    Overall, nicely done. I'd level & perspective correct #1, and maybe try and reduce the window highlights in post.

    "a little"?
    Well ... let's be honest: the lights are totally overexposed and if you had meant to make the Christmas decorations in that front garden your subject, you failed.
    But if you wanted it to come out just like this (for whichever reason), then, of course, you succeeded.
    The angle is all weird, there wasn't an earthquake going on? ;)

    Therefore I like the second a lot better, mostly so the stars in the sky!

    2 is my favourite because of the point of view, the stars and the snow :shock:. (I can't wait till we get our first snow fall - apparently it's coming in four days!)

    #1 is way too blown out for my taste. Perhaps a little WB correction would help tone down that harsh yellow cast; unless you want it that way.

    #2 is pretty kewl. I think maybe tightening up to your aperture and taking a longer exposure would help those lights have a more tightened flare oppose to the blown centers. If you're already at your smallest ap, then try using an ND2 or cpol filter.

    Was it like pitch black out? Nice shots. I am amazed with night photography.

    all the lights are blown out. Try a smaller aperature (bigger number)

    The lighter part of the sky in the back of number two made me think it was late fternoon-evening instead of dead night. I agree. Smaller aperture.

    i think even if number one was exposed properly it would still just be some peoples houses. number 2 could be nice with maybe more sky and less hot spots.

    I really like #2! I think what brings me to like it so much is Orion's belt and Betelgeuse
