The sunrise picture was taken at the same time as the first image, but the EXIF has somehow gone missing!

As others have pointed out, the worse the light, the more important it is to lower the ISO you use (feels contrary maybe, but that's how one did it in the film days, and it works well with the Nikon 1 cameras)! Noise is least, and dynamic range best, at base ISO, so that's what you need to use when the light is dim, and adjust aperture and shutter accordingly!

Your photo set above (with EXIFs showing raised ISO) doesn't illustrate your teaching point about ideally using base ISO in dim light, but rather its impracticality.

Indeed, you're right, bad selection of images, but in good light you can bump up ISO quite a bit with no negative effects.

Hope these are better examples!
