Nice ones.
#3 would be my fave if it weren't for the vertical framing - too much empty space.
You didn't want to stop down a little more?
Very sharp focal point but elsewhere showing signs of being OOF.
Well done otherwise.

Yeah you are right man, I should of used it at F8 but problem was I didn't want to wait 3-5 seconds to snap the picture. Although I was lazy and had a tripod, next time I will shoot at a more suitable F-stop for sure. It was pretty cold at night here in Minnesota, the fall weather is about to kick in and I will need to start wearing gloves to shoot out long enough without my fingers freezing.

And for the horizontal one, I do have a similar one right here.

4th is better than 3rd, horizontal framing suits this composition better plus the back of the cars is not cutted
I kind of like the 2nd one but I think the first is flat. Looking at it, I feel... nothing.
