    You'll have to post these on photobucket or similar hosting site and link from there. You can't link from your gmail account.

    I like the composition of the first shot. I wish the cars were gone and the trees were not so over saturated. Did you bump the greens in post? Also it looks like you got carried away with the sharpening. The very top of the trees look crisp or brittle.

    The second shot is a picture of a shrub with a building behind it. Step back... Walk around... Find aspot were the vegitation frames the building instead of blocks it. From what I have learned in the past few months is that your feet can be your best friend. (even if they stink)

    I like the third shot a bit more. I only wish that you would have taken the photos early morning instead of late afternoon. The sun would have lit the sign nicely and you would have avoided the sun glare in the last shot.

    Speaking of the last shot. The letters are raised off of the background making them hard to read. Might want to avoid this angle altogether.

    Here what I think

    1. Part of car and tree overexpose

    2. There is a composition issues here.

    3. Part of glass look burnt out, also there is a composiiton issues here

    4. This one doesn't do anything to me. Sun glare is annoying.


    Sorry.
