Yep, it's enticing and works well as an image inviting us through that gateway and that path leads us nicely up the hill and those nice cloud formation. As it stands that tree on the left intrudes a little I think and could be cloned out and perhaps just a little less exposure or a slightly darker foreground. I might have pulled back a little more to include more of the gateway in the foreground and those interesting walls, either moving to remove that tree from the frame or moving to include all of it. Also notice that your daffodils have a greenish tinge when they should be screaming out yellow - slight colour adjustment there. All in all though a nice image.

Love the detail in this, the eyes, yeah would have been nice maybe to see some detail I guess. My biggest criticism is the depth of shadow on the face. Hard one to read this one as it seems there are two light sources (?) one right and one left - maybe a reflector would have worked to throw in some detail in the shadow or if he'd just turned a little to the left that might have worked or just a little fill in flash on low power - the shadows just need lifting to get some detail.

Liking the composition in this one with that triangle of shadow incorporating the pram pushers and even that little boys hand reinforces it. I might cut out the ceiling though - just a might but I think it's somehow stronger. Exposure looks pretty good with what must have been a shot against the light and there are a really nice range of tones in the image. So technically not so bad at all. As a photo it doesn't really 'speak' to me though personally - it's like there's no story there ... but the majority of street style shots make me feel the same way. Maybe as part of a series possibly taken from the same spot even, it could work really well. Personally in airports I just shuffle around impatiently looking at my watch and the departures board so well done making the most of the opportunity.

this is a really nice image. Like the composition, like the tonality (I might have reduced the brightness of the boats in the lower right - or maybe not. They just seem to grab a bit too much attention from the rest of the image). Overall very nice and full of mood and interest and I'm guessing the composition was nicely balanced by altering the direction of that crane. One negative point that I noticed immediately (for me anyway) - that tower. I can't see if it's actually clipped or not but I think it could certainly do with a bit of headroom to take it away from the edge of the frame. Otherwise really nice image.
