    No animals here, just a huge lot of land. I took some images and was wondering what you all thought about them.

    Looking mainly for CC on composition and possibly any artistic input as to what I could do different (PP and such)

    I like the red truck (what can I say, I'm a sucker for a beat-up vehicle in a field!!). The colour is really great!

    The other 2 don't do much for me...too dark maybe? I think the 1st one is lacking a focal point....and could use some cropping, there is too much sky, or too much driveway. (It has a "line" drawn through the centre of the photo.)

    The 3rd one is having the same problam as the 1st...it's cut in two, at the centre...it should be cropped at the bottom. (To get the dock into one of the "sweet spots" of the rule of thirds) Also, I'm not I like the few weeds in front?

    Look up "rule of thirds"....it has helped me very much!!!

    :O)

    I'm no pro.....but, hope that was somewhat helpful!

    Done a layer to darken the sky to bring that out as it was over exposed , boosted the hightlight/midtone and shadow contrast levels. A slight sharpen , contrast boost and a very slight saturation change. I could do alot more but now u see anyway :thumbup:
