I don't care how many times it's been photographed, this is a pretty spectacular image of a well known location! Great lighting, framing and exposure.
What more can we ask?
Welcome to TE. Look forward to seeing more of your work.

The autumnal colours have been beautifully captured and the overall framing is nice. I would crop the image from the bottom to remove the cross path as the light area does detract somewhat.
Ideally a viewpoint standing a little further forward to remove the lamppost and sign completely would be preferable but maybe you would have lost too much of the trees if you had tried to do that.

The previous critiques have really pretty much said it all. Most of us probably wouldn't have spotted the possibilities, let alone executed it in such a fabulous way.
It really is one of those comparatively rare images where the main reaction is "Wow".

A really powerful image. Tight framing on the stag has worked very well and the weather adds to the atmosphere.
I'm not sure whether the hind on the right adds to, or detracts from, the overall image.
It adds to the 'story' but on balance I think I would prefer a tighter crop, removing that element.
Still a fabulous shot.

In most of the images we see of the Greek islands it's the contrast between the white buildings, the blue sky and the colours on the doors & shutters which provides the impact.
Here it's the repetition of shapes and the simple contrast of light and dark which has the impact.
I have never really worked in B&W because I don't 'see' the image it can create as you have.

A thousand people might have seen it, smiled, and walked on. You took the time to take the photo! There's not much I can say by way of critique other than very slight rotation clockwise would have made the sign in the window horizontal. I suspect the sign at the top would then have been leaning to the right, but the white line below the window does make the 'lean' there more obvious.
A minor criticism of an amusing image.
Many years ago in Canada I saw a firm of accountants with the name of 'Bean Counters Assoc' (or similar) and I didn't take the photograph. I've regretted it ever since.
Reflections of Barcelona 4 by mjw364 (6142)

Amazing architectural detail and a shot worth incurring the wrath of others to capture. With most mirror image shots the 'mirror' side is immediately obvious because of distortion but here, without the sign over the newsagent, it would be almost impossible to determine the original from the reflection.

On viewing the thumbnail I thought I was looking at a grossly over sharpened image. Looking at the main image that clearly is not the case. The level of detail in the building and the sharp (natural) contrast between the panels is incredible. The people standing close to the Cathedral certainly help to show the massive scale of the place.
