    exposure wise, the pictures seem to be ok. but it soon becomes apparent as i view your pictures i feel that you shot your subjects simply for the sake of shooting them. it's ok, as you learn, try to isolate your subjects so that your images will not be cluttered with unnecessary information. i understand it might not be doable all the time, so it takes time. learn from reading up on compositions and lighting, and by looking at how clubsnappers might have shot the same event such as the NDP like u, u might learn a few things about composition! keep shooting.

    Ok point taken 1) isolate subjects from unnecessary information.

    Some of your pictures are either cropped from the side or from the top, eg the financial centre and the merlion part 1. Found that rather distracting. The lighting at the top of the last frame seems a little overexposed. Otherwise most of your pictures lacks focus. Well but then, I have difficulties in this aspect as well.
    You seem to be focusing on cityscapes and night cityscapes. Perhaps you can look at how others has done it. Or pick up some books on cityscapes. May give you a better idea.

    Exposure is fine, in most cases, either just nice or just a little off, no problem still can be saved since highlights not too blown, etc.

    Composition needs work, and there are perpetually tilts in every photo with buildings/structures, they are glaringly obvious, especially with such subjects. Make sure that your horizon is straight, and try to take a less side-on perspective unless the building/structure looks better that way.

    Careful with the very different exposures in cityscapes at night. You might want to do longer exposures to help bring out the details in the shadow areas.

    singapore 42 nd birthday:
    avoiding building on bottom left corner wud be good and also lamp posts. seem to clutter.

    financial center: vertical composition might help better. u will have to look bit at frame while composing though. vertical provided u r taking the buildings as subject

    night view of cbd seems nice. might look better if u move photo more to right. try that too.

    merlion pt 1: seems like too many subjects.

    merlin pt2: vertical composition wud be better. also takin photo from front of statue would look better

    experiment with both vertical and horizontal compositions
