I LOVE straight forward shots like these that exmemplify multiple aspects of living. Contrast is perfect (the white borders around the windows/doorways helps immensely), there are many evident patterns throughout your composition.
Perfectly framed and exposed. Great catch!
Brilliant Catch , cool shot
Cool. Looks like is going to hit the SPOT
Kinda cute, but IMO if you're going to do a dead-on shot like this of a subject with SO many straight lines, you need to make sure they are PERFECTLY straight. You have a tiny bit of an angle and need to do a little bit of perspective correction.
EDIT: I would also crop out some on the left to make it more even... it's a good symmetry shot, but it's not symmetrical.
I would also personally give this a sharpening pass and a bit of contrast.
I'd show you an example but your photos are not ok to edit.
Hm, wow. I played with it a bit on my own for fun. It's about .5 degrees off CW. (that's not the wow part...) I increased the contrast by about 80 points to get what I felt was the desired effect. (That's the wow part)
I can't tell you on sharpening since the image is so small.
I think you can get away without the perspective correction since the issues are slight once you fix the angle.
