Yep. The only thing that would make them better is colour.

IMO, the HDRI treatment on the B&W images doesn't work so hot. IT leaves sharpening artifacts out the wazoo on most of the pictures.

You can achieve a lot of the pop of the actual textures without HDRI, and I think the pics would probably look better for it. PIc 1 sort of survives it, PIC 2 suffers from halos big and small. PIC 3 is outright messed up looking. Pic 4 gets by, but I suspect some other treatments would work better for it.
