Great work.

Some striking architecture in your home town. :o

If you get the chance reshoot the second one without the van

I like the first shot a lot. The only thing is the contract between the building and the sky could be stronger (IMO).  Beautiful light.

I like all these images David. Agree with Rod about removing the van, maybe possible in Lightroom? Found myself wondering how those glass windows would look with a sunset reflection??? Good job just getting out there and looking for shots! And, happy graduation!

I like the images as well. It looks like a beautiful city. As for removing the van in pp it would be difficult. It could be done but you would spend a good deal of time and have to be very precise because the precise angles formed by the building and street.

I don`t mind the van..(-:  Your pics look SUPER sharp to me, somewhat amazing.... Much in the way of PP...? You definitely have an eye geared making the best of your kit in the images you create.

Just my usual lens profile corrections, aberration correction, exposure adjustments, a little sharpening but not too much.

Nice clear pics.  I agree with John about the van - eliminating via pp would be extremely difficult if not impossible given what's going on behind.  However, just for giggles I cropped that photo from the bottom to  the top of the garage entrance.  Give it a try (and maybe a little off the left side as well.)  The driveway doesn't add much to the shot anyway, which is all about the light and the geometry.  I think cropping  makes for a better image.
