I agree with Tom. The images are very "soft", and it's not just "fast lens glow". I've shot with a Konica Hexanon 57mm f/1.2 which was tack sharp at the point of focus. Plenty of glow, for sure, but sharp and contrasty. These are just not sharp to my eye. I agree also that this may just be a case of camera shake, because I've seen incredibly sharp images taken with that Nokton. Try a similar set with a tripod, maybe?

Nice images though!
