To me its coming across beautifully. Photographs convey an observation rather than a statement. Great going.

What format are you using it doesn't look like 35mm to me?

I love the photo of the balconies, it's ALIVE.

The one I liked most was the balcony with the A/C's and the slightly dilapidated shutters (#2).

I also like #8 - the simplistic and clean representation of a common urban scene. the best part is the the missing humans are just felt everywhere.

#9, I feel the crane should have been complete. like a monster at work. now it has no head.

#1 is feels nice, but, to me, does not convey too much else.

#3-#7 I did't feel too much about...

I like the concept though, the "place" thingie ... best of luck.
