    5 and 6 are interesting... My eyes "want" to look at the building... But the focal point pulls them away... Makes my head hurt :lol: Maybe a bit more DOF to keep my eyes from wanting to focus the courthouse?

    But maybe its just me...

    The light is an improvement over the last ones for sure.

    I think you need to work on the composition a bit.

    #3 for example. Nothing outside of the front facade of the bank is interesting. Every other object in the photo is a distraction or is plain ugly. Try getting riight in front of the bank with a wide or ultra wide angle lens and get some interesting perspectives of the small front facade.

    #4 is better than 3, but the great morning light is on the back of the building so the shot doesn't benefit. Shot #1 is getting the light and it helps, but the road sign and the handicap parking sign are distractions.

    Sometimes getting the whole building just doesn't work to create an interesting shot. Try getting closer or using a wide angle.

    2 & 5 are nice shots but a bit over exposed for my taste.

    6 is over exposed, out of focus (flower) and you cut off the flower on the right edge.

    7 is a snapshot.

    5 + 6 are brilliant ! The other dont really do much for me even though the puddle reflection is rather cool
