Nice! How'd you get access to the heraldsun rooftop?
I have both a 28/2.8 Series E and 50/1.8 series E, but they are both manual focus lenses (and none of Nikon's excellent AF-D primes would AF on the D40 anyway) and I didn't exactly have a hand available for focusingYou haven't thouth about getting a faster lens? I think that shot might have worked a little better if you'd used a bit more tele and a wider aperture. I'd think of a Tamron 17-50 or Sigma 18-50, as those would allow you those luxuries.
My personal style is to get warmth and contrast with indoor photos. If the colour is off, it's because I'm colourblind and because I'm working on my laptop's LCD, which is a bit dull compared to my external LCD at home.The only niggle I've got is that it seems to have a wee bit too much contrast and that it seems to need some color correction, I'd hazard to say it's got too much red in it. And my screen has too much yellow in it, so when something looks red, it is red.
Dr Q, that's amazing, so sharp you can see the water drops on the swans head, really pretty!
Your last 2 shots were great
