    Very nice detail and sharpness in the first, I would however have used a smaller aperature on some of them. With a smaller perature you end up with a starburst pattern (number equal to your aperature blades) around lights instead of blobs, especially with closer lights. I think it would make for a more pleasant scene, but what do I know ;)

    I agree. They're great, but the blobs aren't so cool on the lights.

    If you use f/64 or so it should be more starlike vs a flood of light.

    I do like them though, but what do I know.

    f/64 on a D100 would result in a picture blurry beyond recognition thanks to diffraction. This isn't a MF camera :) The starlight effect is already very evident in all of the photos. You could make it even more pronounced by going to f/22 but you'd loose significant sharpness.

    Pssst, Garbz: what is "diffraction" and why is it so prominent the smaller your aperture is?
    And why don't MF camera have that effect at such small f-numbers?

    All in all I would say that if these were mine, I'd be happy about them, though I might feel that Photo 4 is too glaring.

    I sure like Photo 7 where the use of a small aperture is quite evident in the lights already.
    Photo 2 has a nice sky-at-dusk but the street lights do look like blobs there...

    Yes it is tough to get the right setting with the scene being so bright. I agree the last two are better, hence why I said some would benefit from a smaller aperature. #6 is your best followed by #1 IMO, pretty brave too standing in the middle of the street with cars going by.

    I was hoping they saw the tripod at the last second are avoiding hitting me :)
