Long exposure. Night photography

Something I’ve been procrastinating for long time is trying long exposure and night photography; the main reason for that being that I kind of avoid using the tripod as much as I can. Oh well, this weekend I was actually not only inspired to try all this, but also to try it with both my lenses and see the difference. I am definitely not a geek and I have a hard time understanding how the different lenses work, so these kind of exercises help me to understand, in my own way, how to best use the equipment I own. I don’t have a conclusion yet, but I feel like I would rather use the wide angle lenses for city landscapes like this. However, if I have to judge from the flare of the street lamps, I’d prefer the 40mm. Anyone can help with some advise, directions? PS The photos are taken in two different nights, the 40mm first and then the 18/22mm, from almost the same location.
