Hi Sonny,
What I really like when I see a couple of frames like these?

A/ they are not likely going to win a pulitzer prize. But they do show what 
is possible if you just go shoot pictures without a whole bunch of technical 
stuff blocking one's seeing ability! Sure sometimes a bit of undertanding of 
the ASA or ISO is required, but it's night? "So what, go shoot pictures!" 
Because it's quite possible if you don't drag in all the technical crap some 
people do.
If more of them do as you do.... "SEE -- SHOOT!" We'd have a greater number 
of interesting photographs on the screen!

I particularly like the first photograph!
