When possible try to square off your shots unless it's done for effect. #1 isn't squared off and it looks like you should have gotten more distance to capture more of it and square it off. Your cam is angle upward slightly.
You can always crop down a shot, but what isn't there never will be...

#2 Suffers because it's top half of a one story building. You need to show the floor...
Shooting near dawn or sunset whichever would even out the lighting inside better rather than when the sun is much brighter than the interior. Or flash fill it.

#3 Not squared off and as such isn't working for me.

#4,5 Lacks content. I would have tossed those if I had shot them.

Content is everything. Even blurring and a less than optimum shot angle and exposure can be forgiven if the content is exceptional. This applies more to action shots because when shooting UE shots you generally have the time to line it up, get the exposure right, etc. Some shot to document rather than for art's sake but content is still important for those as well.
A shot without good content, either artistic or documentary is not a keeper.

Whoa, already been a month.

I also wanted to add that the first two shots are a little overexposed. All the pictures have more of an insurance adjuster quality to them, like they're documenting the extent of damage. Definitely worth working on composition. I suspect all subjects could make decent pictures, and I'm more hopeful that the last two could be done artistically.
