2nd pic I think you should watch the verticals.. I would probably move forward for better framing.

#1 Looks a bit uninteresting, there isn't anything in the picture to hold the viewer's attention.

#2 Generally okay, but a bit over-exposed on the Memorial, it's whiting out already.

#3 I like this one somewhat. The picture has a compressed feel to the depth of field. Makes it look like one of those taken with a tilt and shift.

#4 Can tell the focus is on the insignia, but what exactly is the thing it's on? A better positioning will have been better.
