Overall very good. Like them alot. Some more constructive comments though;

1) Nice composition but the enormous area of white is distracting. Not sure if blowing it out to this extent was deliberate or not, but i would have preferred some detail.

2)again, nice scene. Possibly a bit heavy on the shadows though? Its a very dark blue sky.

3+4) Great shots, like them both and the black and white works well.

5) My favourite of the lot. Great composition and perfectly exposed. Great stuff

Thanks for the comments. I couldn't avoid the blown out sky in the 1st picture, as it was a overcast day. As for the 2nd one, the sky hasn't been tweaked, it's just the result of using a polarizer.

Concentrate on equipment and you'll take technically good photographs. Concentrate on seeing the light's magic colours and your images will stir the soul. - Jack Dykinga

Lovely work Daniel - powerful images!
Love No. 1 excellent effect as you scroll down into the buildings, which are so crisp and sharp. Nice!
Regards Alan.

I like them all, well done.
The first Melbourne shot is typical of Australia.. it rains on the city, but nowhere else :confused:

Thank you for the comments :)

AdamJL: That's not really the city, city is to the left and behind me. It is typical Melbourne however, nice warm weather, then rain suddenly for a few minutes and sunshine again ;)

I like #3 the most. The color really makes the shot. Great job!

Number 5 is my favourite .. skill in taking and processing .. great shot.
And number 1 is a very close second .. and for me that white space .. the sky .. is the glue that holds the whole thing together.
I photograph ordinary houses etc for a living .. don't know what I would if I was confronted by a skyscraper.
Thanks for sharing these two great shots.
