These are great. Well done!
Question: Why did you shoot at 1/30th @ f/14? You may have a great reason for doing so, but if not, diffraction, lessening sharpness, sets in on your lens past f/11. Plus, a smaller aperture necessitates a longer shutter speed, increasing likelihood of shake.

Interesting you ask
I bought the D7000 on a whim on new years eve as I wanted to get into a hobbie (I did photography for one year at design school in the early 80's and nothing since It a hangover from then when I had a film camera and shutting down to f22 was the ideal for landscapes (at least that is how I remember it)
I have been trawling forums etc with gusto since and actually about 3 nites ago, after I got back from holiday I read that stopping down 2 stops was the ideal and not the old standard So now I'm trying to remember the new factoid
