    i'll comment about the ones that caught my interest!

    #4 is great compositionally but a little too overexposed.

    #6and7 also are really intersting. very clear, great colors, great mood.

    whats your setup?

    I am using the Canon Rebel XS with the stock lens...until I pick up a new lens. Yeah for some reason I have been having trouble with the overcast sky with my shots :( Which should be an easy shot with the evenly distributed lighting throughout the scene.

    I was just curious if people recommend Aperture-Priority for overcast skys...when dealing with dark places in the foreground and bright overcast sky in background?

    It doesn't really matter, I don't think. The exposure is a total combination of factors. ISO, Shutter Speed, Aperture, and I think most importantly, what you meter off of. I have been struggling with this issue too. If I get the sky acceptable, the foreground gets too dark. I think in this situation an Neutral Density Filter is good idea. A Circular Polarizer helps a bit, but not the answer.

    I like #5 and #6 for color, composition, and content.

    I really like the candid catch of #6. Dramatic lighting. ;)

    No, there were a lot lot more, I just didn't want to put them all up. Also was showing my French friend around the city and could only get to a few spots which was unfortunate. However, I like 40 minutes from the city so it's easily accessible :)

    Bitter Jeweler, I know what your saying I had a few of those with some of my statues, it's tough. I would try metering the sky and the statues would be dark and vice versa for a read off the statue :(. Yeah I think I should look into a 3-stop neutral density filter.
