Miri City Fan - Long exposure

I have been depending on the high sensitivity of my camera to take many photos in poor light. However, I realised that I missed out a lot of details and richer colour if I could just lower the ISO, close the aperture down and increase the exposure time. So tonight, I experiment with low shutter speed, low ISO of 100 and small aperture and here are the results... all taken at the Miri city fan ... time: 6:35PM to 7:00PM. As it was raining slightly, black cloud everywhere, it was quite dark.
f/18, 6 sec
f/18, 15 sec
f/10, 30 sec
f/10 15 sec. Notice that I halved the exposure time and the difference was not really great.
f/8, 8 sec
I cropped the bridge from the picture above.

Comment welcome.

WT, the 3rd and 4th, if can edit as HDR, it would be marvelous, coz the tree need the light glow, but the building(and tree on the right) seem to be a little over.
