Although there are quality issues, there are also IP issues. If you fixed the quality you would be blocked for IP.

Pic 1: too dark.  2 brand names, wall art

Pic 2: You need an IP release for graffiti

Pic 3: too dark. 

Pic 9: so much IP, so many violations

Summary, your pics are too dark. Your chosen scenes are full of IP violations. 

There are other technical faults too, the images are not sharp.

Pic 4: This is just a different view from Pic 1. Same issues, but DO NOT submit multiple views of the same

Greetings!

 

I chose IMG-0836 to take a deep dive into.  I thought it looked dark/underexposed and the histogram confirmed it.

When viewing between 100%-200% view, I noticed the details of the image look pretty soft, and also noise and artifacts in the sky.  The artifacts in the sky were most noticeable around the tops of the buildings.

 

From a composition standpoint I think the taller buildings in the background are interesting, but I don't find the buildings in the foreground very plea

From a composition standpoint I think the taller buildings in the background are interesting, but I don't find the buildings in the foreground very pleasing to the eye.  The vertical line of those foreground buildings is off-kilter as well.

 

I hope this is helpful.  Cheers!

Just checked one picture, and saw 3 IP violations:

0761 will probably also need a property release. You are photographing from a POV that is not public, so the view you have is private.

 

All your pictures show underexposure (0831):

Abambo_3-1682085833134.png

No whites, no highlights. The rest is similar, as shown by @George_F .

In addition, the pictures have a soft look, like if you applied a high amount of noise reduction, eliminating the fine details. And still, I see colour noise.

 

You can limit the number of pictures you post here. All have similar defects. With three assets, the volunteers here have plenty of fodder to check them.  And you will get great advice.

IMG_0797.jpg - underexposed and IP issues throughout; don't even bother trying to get city scenes accepted unless you're willing tomsoendnthentime to scrub all signs and logos 

IMG_0797.jpg - a bit underexposed and chroma noise throughout 

IMG_836 - underexposed, chroma noise, soft focus
