I liked the B&W series. But I feel having more objects in composition for B/W night shot would help. For example, 2nd last image looks well balanced, while last image is dark in most places. (OR may be its my monitor as I am in office and this monitor is not at all calibrated)
I liked the 6th one with train standing on station.

It is not your monitor... The dark's are over powering the shot... I will work on that next time I do similar shots... Thank you for your input!

Brutus,

Really good captures.... :)

Could you explain about the STAR effect of the lights....??? :?:
Were you able to achieve it with a single shot or did you play around to get the correct aperture...??? :?:

Higher apertures like f/22 will give those star effects on street lights.

Yup, every shot was taken with aperture priority mode at f/22

It depends on the number of aperture blades the lens has.

It's the general consensus, but not necessarily so. Some lenses will starburst at much smaller apertures. I have a particular one that will do it at f/4. It's all to do with the iris construction.

I think my question wasn't clear whant i want to know is : how many blades/Leaves your lens should have to get a 14 petal starburst, because i dont know a lens with 14 blade iris (not atleast Nikon 18-200 or 50mm), so there seems to be some other relation.

The magic number you're looking for is 7.
