I like the #3 & #4. The last one a bit out of focus or shaken, do it by intention?

I would recommend to take Pic #2 with higher aperture like F/11 or F/16.
Star burst from the light of street lamps will look much better for the shot.

At the start of the French Presidency of the European Union in the second half of 2008, the twelve golden stars of the European Flag were mounted on the base, and whole tower bathed in blue light. In addition every hour, on the hour, thousands of flash bulbs give the tower a sparkly appearance.

and if im not mistaken, the lighting system is copyrighted meaning that you shouldnt post pictures taken by you on the internet. or else you need to mention copyright etc etc.. im not sure if its applied to all over the world or not.

On the technical side...u shouldn't have used an aperture of 3.2 for these night shots. Easily perform much better with f/8 at night. I'm sure u had something to put your camera on Or a tripod, as your seconds on the image suggests.

Your highlights have become hotspots and distract the viewers eyes indefinitely. Due to the shallow depth of field of f/3.2, your shots have become soft and the light renditions are wide open circles, which when you use extended exposure, will get big granules of light, esp when movement of light happens in a shot.

Go back to basics of night photography in your camera preset night landscape mode and i think the images will turn out sharper, more vivid and better than this batch.

I can't fault on your composition because it is not easy to do travel photography and get the composition that you want unless u are specifically doing it and have done your research.

Thanks for sharing and shoot more!
