Hi pentaxian_tmb - what software are you using to process your shots? Some color NR in the second shot would definitely help save the image.

I particularly like the second shot with the grain. it complements very well the film emulation.

First photo: why ISO 800 with long exposure? And f6.3 is also not the best, better f4 or so. There are some overexposed areas, should be corrected with PP if you shoot raw.

Night shots like that, I use Tv Mode. If not zoomed in, you can set t=0.1s or a bit shorter, the image stabilization is that good. With contrast that high, you probably need to correct exposure up to one step.

Shoot raw in these cases, which allows for much better correction later on. A pic like that could probably be done with ISO 200-400 and crisp sharp.
