I like this one best. Unfortunately, the lens has a tendency towards color fringing in these pictures :( Some might like it as an effect, but I find the bokeh a bit distracting. That's not to take away from your photography skills, great job here.

I am not completely sure what you mean with "color fringing". I think it's kind of personal preferences. I like to play with the manual focus and actually the bokeh is what I enjoy most in these pictures. Thank you for the kind words, Quan! :D

I'm referring to the rainbow colors at the borders of the out-of-focus objects, more specifically the heptagons induced by the aperture blades. It's a special effect and you're absolutely entitled to your intended artistic expression, it's just my persional opinion :)
