I like the b/f sunset shot, but your jpeg compression setting is too low, maybe can try to resave using compression 6. There are other nice shots but needs stronger composition. That is only my opinion.

Actually, if you read the other forums, you wil note that the D70 like the F5 camera tends to meter to keep shadow detail, this normally makes the picture look under exposed. What I did was to know my camera what my camera can and cannot do, then with that knowledge I am able to predict

The more you take, the better you understand your camera.
No PS work onthe shadow details, but the colours in the sky
was enhanced slightly. just darken the sky slightly
and increased the orange.
I am willing to teach if you want to know.

Too bad the pole of the shelter is distorted, I wil redo this picture with a different lens to correct the distorted pole. I also tried adding flying birds in the sky but they will be too small and will lok like black spots, so decided against it. Would have prefered it if the colours in the sky were punchier, other than that I am satisfied.
Amigo, I like the lamp post shot, but point of view should be lower to get more of the boats in the horizon instead of just the masts.

I will stick to a 12mm
I'll give it a shot (the cropping)
what you see here is full frame without any cropping.

Good call about the cropping.
Now I like it better, still disturbed by the distorted pole.
Here it is

Some details about the shoot
Since the management does not allow photography, we left our tripods behind. We split up so that we do not attract any attention. I was walking around with my hand on my camera and the camera in my bag, only to come out for a few seconds to shoot and then it is back into the bag again. After awhile the security decided that enough was enough and told us to stop and not to make it difficult for him.
So for those thinking of going there remember that photography is NOT allowed.
