Very nice photos. Your use of light and your compositional skills are sharp. One thing I noticed, the first image, while still interesting, it is almost directly cut in half by the line on the fence. I always notice when a photo is a little too symmetrical and it can take away from an interesting composition, because it is too comfortable and easy for the eye. I don't think it's necessarily bad in your case here because the fence isn't identical on the top and bottom, and the flowers growing through are interesting, but I do think that it could be more interesting with a more unique approach to the composition, perhaps from a different angle.

I love the middle one. Your focus is exceptional and the use of shadow/lighting makes for a dramatic effect. The architecture is intriguing and draws my eye in to investigate more, and I love the subject, being the man walking with the cane.

The last photo is also great, I like your use of the foreground, and lack of focus on the background, through the window. The lighting is very nice and so is the composition.

Great work :) keep shooting!

What mike said. :P

These are spectacular. If I didn't know better I would say the toy car in the third picture is real.

Those Look awesome.

To add to what Mike said about the first one, I'd go for an angle taken from the bottom right of the pic, further down and pointing to the sky. You'd get rid of it being too symetric and add a nice touch to it.

Ooh these are really good! They resemble stock photography quite a by, have you tried that? There's a quite good site called Alamy where you upload images and people but them each time they want to use it and you can make quite a bit I've heard. Really like the middle one it's beautiful!
