There is not a lot wrong with your picture apart from maybe the time of day, your composition,exposure and the park path gives the shot a great lead-in. Light or should I say directional light is what gives a photo that magical feel/look, so next time think about when.

Next time if you find similar light try Mono see uploaded mod sometimes it helps.

I do like the formality of this, the lamps speak of a different age. The processing gives a retro feel too, I don't really care for the acid tones that creep into the grass lower in the frame, but it's the style that you wanted and it gives a slightly dream-like intensity. I like the fact that the figures are distant, anonymous.

The change that I would suggest is to clone out the litter. Only the virtual equivalent of picking it up and binning it... It rather spoils the atmosphere. Clone stamp or spot healing tool. Mod to follow.

A well composed and interesting shot. You have a green cast which shows even in the sky. Either a white balance issue or something in processing. You should be able to correct for that a bit by adding some Magenta.

Not a good subject for mono. Most tones will convert to mid tone greys giving a rather flat result if you do not boost contrast. Don't fall for the fad for mono. Mono works well with street scenes, gritty shots, news and so on. Often less successful pictorially.
