Whoa. I see you made it there! Hopefully all went well for ya. Definitely a cool spot to spend a few hours or more. How'd you like it?
I don't know anything about photography so I can't give you any pointers there. But your shots look cool to me. It does seem like there's a little bit of glare in some areas but I don't know. Way better than anything I can do. I'm liking that 2nd one.

It seems as if your shots are pointed slightly upwards. This is just my opinion, but these particular shots seem as if they should be more-so parallel to the ground. Minus the last shot. I think that one looks good as such.
It's up to you, but keeping your vertical lines straight with the edges of the photo tends to make the photo look a bit better. Notice the pillars in the 2nd and how they're crooked? That's what i mean.
(I'm sometimes not good at explaining things. My apologies. Heh.)

awesome colors man, i love how the graffiti really "pops" in the 3rd picture. ya I'd say just work on composition a little bit but overall these are sick shots. They're not over edited or filtered, which I definitely appreciate

I also like the graffiti as is really pops. One thing I noticed is even with the bracketing your skies are still sort of blown out. If bracketing -2, 0, +2 and the sky is still blown out in the -2, I normally manually set until I get a sky I like. Also when playing with your sliders while merging the photos sometimes you'll end up with not quite the sky you want, that's when I that that sky shot, place it as a layer on the HDR image, then hide all in a layer mask and then mask in the spots where the sky goes. Also as Relik mentioned the vertical lines, if you mess that up in-camera, it's an easy fix in photoshop. I might have said more than needed here but anyways... I think you are nailing the composition aspects for the most part.
