    Wow, cool shots! I love all of them, but especially #4!

    Double exposures look incredible in that shot!

    I like the first one in a way ... in particular the upper part is very nice and exposure really works here.

    But then #2 has something. I like it being not tack sharp and blown out in parts. A very nice image!

    Good stuff. I especially liked the tones you got on #3 and #5. I also liked the subtley in those two shots.

    #1 quite good.

    That space outside the foodcourt is always so active and cheerful, but the shot brings some grittiness.


    I agree with your appraisal of #6

    I think you should use a smaller aperture, on whatever you've got.

    Primes often go down to only 22, but a kit zoom can be good (for this at least), and go down to f32.

    Also, you could try, in this shot, a differentiating mask.

    Put some onionskin, or translucent plastic, with the textured surface up on the negative,

    Then use a small mechanical pencil to shade in that area (like the overexposed building.

    Then put into the enlarger negative carrier very carefully so it stays aligned. It's tricky but beats using a piece of cardboard with a hole in it, under the lens.
