Both were shot in RAW with my XTI, Tokina 12-24mm, and a 430ex Flash. I used digital exposure to get a darker exposure for the skies and used a gradient mask. Nothing too complicated. What do you guys think? I'm not good with post processing as most of my stuff are basically straight through the lens

Nice shots!

Can you please explain to me what you mean by "I used digital exposure to get a darker exposure for the skies..."?

Overall I like the pictures and I especially like #2
#1 though I wish there would have been a clearer emphasis on what the subject of the photo was. I really like the PP but I found my eyes darting around the photo grasping at something to focus on.

I like them both, But the first one is perfect, I love who the skies look, but what I really like about the first one is how you can see all the cars that were there and how it goes from being so close to being so far.

I think it's that the bright end of the building pulls your eye away from the cars. At least, it does mine.
Pretty nice shots, though, other than that.

I agree with the bright bit pulling you away but it works for me as i seemed to look at every car on the way there. Nice job ;)
