very nice shots of a very nice city, catalex !!

but i could not help to put some suggestions as well, ..... hope u don't mind, .....

> for shooting scenic photos like this,, it's better to use multi-metering instead of spot / center weight metering. while center-weight metering makes some balance, spot meter is useful in object oriented shooting where you want the object to get isolated from others in terms of lighting and want to put the object in a tight frame. i think multi-metering could result in better exposure in scenic images like these.

> also, for scenes where you don't focus a particular object, u should use a higher aperture value (~f/5-f/7 : i noticed u are use aperture priority mode). again, lower aperture value makes only the focused object sharper, while the higher aperture value provides good sharpness throughout the frame.

hope that helps.
