Taken with Macro filters. Alson taken by a window which created the shadow. I also added some nice effects in photoshop touch.

You've brought out the quirkiness of your subject (I'm sure the real Tour stands straighter than this... Wink ), and there's a nice hint of luminosity behind it, but the actual trinket is rather dark and flat except for the ridges on the left side which are well defined. I'd like a bit more contrast in the main body of the subject, after all this is polished metal. It looks a bit tarnished here!
My main quibble though is that it seems rather cramped and constrained in its frame. That's partly the very heavy dark vignette, but also the way it is squeezed into a portrait frame - portrait may seem the obvious choice for a vertical subject but because there is nothing low showing on either side it doesn't actually convey height very well.
It would be difficult to do a Mod to add more space, because of that vignette, but here's a suggestion: from the title I assume that this is a pendant for a necklace so it will have a chain. Why not arrange the chain on the flat surface, mainly to one side of the base, and use a square or landscape frame? That would give 'low land' beside the 'tower'.

This one is quite interesting, but your mono conversion is rather heavy and flat. The tones are all a bit mid grey. I struggle with your EXIF. Why you needed such a high ISO and shutter speed, I'm not sure. A lower ISO would improve quality and a set piece like this should be off a tripod and a low shutter speed is then the norm.

Changing aperture would change the whole image and this works quite well because of the minimal depth of field.
