the texture colors are a bit too bold, but its alright. The lighting needs a bit of work too.

But still, good work!

Looks cool.

To improve it, personally, I think that the bump's on the walls and some other models are a bit high and the colours are a bit rich, maybe lighten them up a bit to give a washed out and worn look to the scene.

Good work man!

this really looks like a typical alley way in the game half life2 but the scene is a bit to bright. maybe a render at a little bit after dusk might make give a cool spooky feel.

Very good for your first textur project! Would point out that adding bevel to your objects would really boost the realism, since you would get the important highlights on the edges. If u don't bevel, u will get those razor sharp edges, which will make them look computergenerated.
The textur work itself is really good though.
