Nice series. However, although I like the composition of these, there are some things that I find to be a bit distracting. Overall, I feel like they are suffering from too much noise and from distracting lens flare. I don't have a super wide angle lens like the 10-20mm, but I do shoot a bit at night. I find that using a low ISO, small aperture, and a longer exposure seems to work well in avoiding lens flare and reducing noise. Also, in the mansion photo, you have blown highlights in the top center of the frame, which is a bit distracting.

Like I said, though, overall I like the idea of the series. However, there are a few distracting elements that, to me, keep it from being a really good series.

Very nice photos. I especially like the McHenry museum and the Random Alley. I never thought I could appreciate a picture of dumpsters. lol

Can you give me an idea of your camera settings for both of those?

i completly agree with what your saying. ill try that next time. most of these were shot at 400 iso and larger aperture. so the best way to not get lens flare is low iso, low aperture, and a longer exposure time?
that Mansion pic I took a few days ago and the others i took last night, so thats why there is a difference between those pics.
