    welcome to the forum.
    Most of these are way overprocessed for my taste but I do like #9 here. It has an interesting composition and works well with the high contrast for me.

    I'm also not fond of all the editing these pictures have gone through, i think number 4 has got most potential and some nice lines leading the viewers eye into the picture more.

    Without the editing i think #4 has some great potential and interest. nice work, but don't edit so much! :)

    I agree about the PP being too much on these. Number 4 would have worked for me if the DOF was done in camera instead of post processing. The lines are very "messy" where you selected for blur and it's not a natural type of blur with the sides out of focus and entire length of center in focus.

    #6 is my personal favorite. I agree that some of the editing was over the top, but hey, it's your choice. Welcome to the forum.

    Im not really in to editing at all... With that being said
    #2 is by far my favorite photo. I typically dislike how people use BW and color, but in this case i really like it
