For a first try, and being new to it, you did well.
Looking at the position of the lights in your setup, you'll want to expand from the two lights at opposing 45°angles. Not that there is anything wrong with it, it will generally result in predictable results...But that setup is generally, "set-up and blast".
For the urban style you were going after, you might try moving your key (main) to the camera axis (but higher up, pointing 45° down to the subject), and then move your fill to either side to soften any hard shadows.

Thanks Longwatcher... I defiently feel what you are saying. I just shot the ap to f/11 for clarity reasons...

Here's my setup Ibkev:
I am very new at this whole lightihng thing... started using strobes only back since Decemeber (550ex's). So this setup probally looks reall funky (a dish & an umbrella) compared to standard procedures:
