    I like number three's look but it's obvious that those boat don't belong in an old photo. Saying that I like number two but the grass needs a bit of attention.

    I do like what you did with the third one but, like tmpadmin said, it doesn't really look old.

    When I see a photo of a place I want to feel like I'm there. Like I'm transported to a place I would like to be. I get that from the second photo.
    To see the grass and looking across the water gives a sense of place, like your standing on the shore, which is what "transports" you.

    Sorry if that sounds a little on the odd side, but that is how I look at it.

    It's too bad the sales wern't colorful. The overcast sky with the stark white sales, lack of color IMO makes what could be a terrific photo fall short. Maybe saturating the sky some or bring out the grass's neutral brown could help. The place has potential but the depth is lacking. Number 3 would be great if they had an exibit of an old skipper ship.

    I think that the lack of color is what gives it it's feel.
    I like it as is! :thumbsup:

    Maybe you could see what it would look like in B&W! :eyebrows:

    I also really like the 3rd one, good work.

    I prefer the colour ones with the bottom cropped out.
