Interesting subject but they all seem a bit under exposed. Maybe some tweaks would help them.

These were actually taken a little before sunrise on a very cloudy morning so I tried to keep that gloomy feel to them. But you're right, they just look underexposed.

I can understand what that but I think you may need to tweak them a bit to get the right balance between gloom and punch. This may be a good occasion to experiment until you get the look you want.

Not bad - still lacking in punch/pop - mainly because of the low contrast lighting of the scenes. Hard to do anything about, but selective dodging may help.
