A great set, again! My preferences run to the last three but they are all really well done. I am assuming these are wide open and I am somewhat surprised by the depth of field in the images if so. Almost makes me wish I lived in a large city with a spectacular skyline in order to be able to get images like these, almost, but not quite! When I see these I am wishing I had some really fast glass but I seldom get to a large city and even more seldom am there at night.

Almost but not quite - I hear that.  

The ISO 200 work here is at f/5.6, the sweet spot of the lens for DOF/diffraction considerations.   Hand-held work I try to use at f/1.4 at least (which often calls for the ISO to be maxed at 3200).  Wide open the effect on lights is like a glowing globe, and I'm rather obsessed about the star-point renderings of lights at night.
