    The First and Third I like. Looks to me like you've probably achieved ten zones in the third. The First picture could use a bit more contrast and brightness. Are these shots RAW or JPG? You say you decided to shoot monos - does that mean the images are JPGs using the incamera filters? I just wondered as the Third shot looks like it may have had some lens correction applied in DPP.

    The Second picture, although it has a wonderful sky suffers from a distracting foreground. If it wasn't for that, the wide-angle distortion would be tolerable for me. The environs of the darker skyscrapers are quite dark too - it's all become a little indistinct.

    The second photo is beautiful, but the foreground is just too busy, the first one is nice needs a bit of contrast. The last one is really great! I think it needs a bit of contrast and brightness though. Still, you got some nice shots here.
