    don't ask for C & C if you'll get irritated by what people will say... just post the pics, don't ask for any comments and suggestions... then everything will be nice...

    noise could be due to long exposure , even if your iso is at 100.
    and though you might have wanted messy , it just doesn't appeal to most.
    we're all trying to get better. getting angry won't help anyone.
    i quite like your third shot though. although like ggodetucsamoht said , the bottom left hand corner is quite distracting. probably cropping it off would be better.

    #1 has some potential

    #2 is just a mess, full stop. WB too warm, composition is a mess and highlights blown.

    #3 - you could have fixed the 2 bottom corners in your post processing. WB also a bit warm here.

    If you are going to redo this, do take note of the points brought up by the various people.

    If this is the kind of attitude you are giving after asking for C&C, then I think you better just show your photos to your good buddies and friends.

    For pic1, many does not mean ugly. Just take a look at the first photo in this post by a fellow CSer. Your response is uncalled for.

    Pic2 is messy cause of the stray strands of light especially on the right. If this is intended by you, then fine.

    Pic3, bottom does indeed look noisy, but I think that's just the effect from the tarmac road material.

    Take it easy bro

    Personally, I feel the last photo has the most potential. The steaks of coloured lights of blue and yellow attracts me. Who cares if its noisy?

    For number 1, it's just normal bokeh. Nothing special really.

    For number 2, messy is what you want. Fine. But it can be messy in the nice way. Far too overexposed to be nice IMO. And I would find a better spot for this photo too. I would rather see more colours (traffic lights) rather than all yellow.

    Take it easy. Like my teacher always tell me, the truth always hurts.

    If you can't take C&C, don't post.

    Do retake and see how the shots can be improved!

    i am going to say that i like nothing here.

    #1 - just bokeh, nothing very special to it, think of something new to do, how to make the bokeh work for you, instead of just shooting for the sake of having a go. there are loads of interesting examples out there, you only have to search.

    for example:
    link1
    link2
    even something like this
    link4

    #2 - too much going on, simplify, cut down. unless you can somehow find the order in the mess, which is not easy:

    link1
    link2
    link3

    #3 - what do you think people will think when they see the picture? does it make them think more? is it your intention to make them think more, or just present a few strands of light? most people will demand that you make them think more.
