I like it. That bench up there looks so cut and clean. But down at the bottom the houses look too crowded in on each other.

I really like the contrast between the empty bench and the crowded houses below.

Love the bench - I agree with Cristo about the houses.
Also, there's no difference in value
within the houses and I would like to see them softened
even a tad more so as not to 'fight with' the benches.
Keep up the good work!

It looks so dramatic after the rain. Is it?
I think it is amazing.

Great study , Is this from life. Life is always harder to get perspective completely correct.
If it wasn't maybe laying a couple of grid lines would be beneficial. I always find when I do that I'm always surprised at where a line is as opposed to where I thought it would have been if I didn't have a grid. Of course it great to also draw without a grid too want to keep it loose as well.

Either way I like your style.
