Today I chose to restrict myself to using my 50mm 1.8D and here are the results!

I like this for the row of vertical lines and the crop! Well seen and shot!
It's good, but has one flaw - the very bright lighting in the street at the back. Either tone it down with the burning in tool, or a littles less exposure when shooting. This is exactly the type of image that fools average or predictive metering systems.
I assume the D90 has spot metering - could have helped here.
I like thought behind it, street scene etc. Paul is corect about the metering but spot metering is not always possible on a moving subject. Some times I dial in a minus exposure value so I can adjust later in PS.
I like the ceiling reflection, nicely seen.
Apart from the advice above, I would also suggest to straighten the verticals, - I used the transform>distort tool, sharpen a little, and light the shadows on the man in front a little.
Spot metering here would have been on the buildings in the background, not the figure. The buildings would then to convert to mid grey - 18%.
