Last one is easily the best and the most interesting to me in this set, and is a great shot, although the other ones aren't great, but not bad, they all have good composition but there all lacking impact apart from the last.
Keep it up!

I bought this camera in 1983 and used it for about 20 years, still have it and it still takes great pictures.

Actually there was an AE-1 and an AE-1 program version. The AE-1 program (which you have also) was the better of the two and was one of the first "fully automatic" SLR cameras at the time. It was a machine and hardly ever needed service other than the common shutter squeak that was an easy fix.

Here is mine with a 70-200mm zoom lens........

Have a look at this......

Dramatic low key in the last one is good, but maybe you can show the subject hierarchy better (assuming you want the apparent subject matter being the camera at the corner) by spotting out the lamp or placing it not so statically near the center.
