Straight Lines, Low Light, Long Exposure, and Railroad Tracks

As usual, the back story behind it isn't incredibly important, so I'll cut that all out.
I've been shooting with a Fujifilm HS50EXR, while slowly teaching myself about photography. Which consequently leads to a complete lack of consistency in my photos.
So, now that I'm finally getting to a point where I understand what all these funny numbers and words mean, I'm looking for some feedback on the stuff I've shot with my manual settings and experiments. (All the photos are from my October shots, everything before these weren't shot with a tripod)

Low light:
1:


2:


Light painting/long exposure to brighten low light w/o flash:
1:


2:


3:

(That room was actually pitch black, I didn't even notice half the things in here until I was looking through the photos)

Straight lines(AKA: The magic of tripods):
1:

I like all the negative space in low light 1, but I still think you should brighten up the center area to make it pop a little more. Not a whole lot though.

I like the mood in straight lines 2, but I think it would be more interesting to compose the shot a bit closer to the scattered papers on the floor. I think that's the most interesting part.

Low light 2 and straight lines 1 lack a subject and are kind of boring.

I noticed some of the shots are a bit noisy. I'm not sure what it's from, but you should make sure your at iso 100 whenever possible and don't try to pump up the exposure or shadow detail too much in post. You can also get noise from really long exposures in low light due to the sensor warming up.

I like Low Light 1 - although I'd have cropped it a little tighter personally. Also is it properly centred? Looks a tiny bit off to me.

Low light 2, is frankly boring, a lot of noise and isn't sharp. It looks like a very high ISO. If you are shooting with as tripod, you can set the ISO as low as you can get and just increase exposure time to compensate. This has the same issue as Straight Lines 2

Light Painting 1 is not a bad shot, I think you could have slightly better framing in it, but still not bad.

Light Painting 2 is not well lit - try moving around a bit more from behind the camera and get less flat lighting on it.
