    Hey everybody, I'm new here. I'd appreciate some feedback on these photos I took this past weekend. I don't have Photoshop or any other serious editing program (next year, when I buy a new computer!), so my editing is basically limited to what I can do with Google Picasa. I'm generally pretty happy with how these came out, but constructive criticism is always welcome - both on the composition and the execution. Thanks!

    Nice photos and composition! For several of them, I think a slightly lower angle might have added a bit more to the photos. Not that I would have wanted to crawl on the floor in there... ;) but I'd be curious to see what that would to do these. :)

    Nice shots! You might get more impact on these if they were in sepia or B&W. 5 is my favorite, its like the window to the twilight zone.

    Thanks, believe it or not I downloaded the Gimp a few months ago, and it's still sitting on my desktop, yet to be employed. I'll try to shame myself into checking it out soon.

    Thanks, that's a really good suggestion. When I go to these places, my tendency is to walk around with my camera attached to my tripod unless I have to go down some sketchy stairs or across a dodgy section of floor or something. I pretty much just leave it at the same height unless a shot actually requires me to change it. I'm going to try to remember to play around with that next time.

    I'll try that. For some reason, I find that the sepia seems to work best with the exterior shots, which I tend not to post online, lest I give away the location and invite vandalism. I'll try playing around with some of these in B&W, though. I hadn't thought of that.

    Here's one of my favorite sepia shots I've taken:
