Very nice indeed!
I have to say they look better than anything I could get with my K20.

Those look very impressive. Had exactly the same question as thkn777. I suspect RAW plus PP

All taken using a single jpg, no post processing, just resize.
Thanks for viewing

if those are straight from camera jpeg, there is something wrong with your resizing. because the sharpening artifacts around the edges are terrible.

the sky is really off, they are very square pixel. There is something wrong with the shots. It is not smooth for a long exposure shot. I would ev down -2/3 the high lights are blown out. Also there is to much noise at 800iso in the sky as well.

Some resize with crop, perhaps some I took with ISO 800.
Also 1 more thing, I shd take out the UV filter
Also using F/20.
Will try again with different setting
Anyway, thanks for the feedback.
