I am not sure what you impressed you so much. Too many blown highlights, and very contrasty scenes. Auto exposure with night shots works quite well with Canon cameras. You have to choose your AF point crefully though - on some bright spot but not on a light source.

Ive got to agree with this. Nothing you cant get with a faster shutter speed (3-4 secs maybe). At ISO100 you wouldn't expect (much) noise no matter what you were shooting IME.

Nice shots though.

Peter 13. wow, stunning shots, thanks for posting those.
