    Watch the exposure your sky is getting blown out in some of these photos. The locations are awesome. You may want to invest in a graduated filter that would help with the blown sky

    Gah sorry I wasnt paying attention. I dont know if any of the cameras you have allow for auxiliary lenses or not but its something to look into. I love those kinds of places though. We have an old assylum here that I love to walk around the grounds and a lot of the old buildings. Where abouts do you live anyway?

    Try more interesting angles, especially in 5 and the last two.

    Nice to see you recording these old bridges FC. Is the first one the same through truss bridge you posted a while ago as a Trestle? Your second one is a simple truss bridge; note that the trusses are not linked together across the top of the trusses.

    looks like 1,3,5,and 6 would have made very nice HDR shots (especially 5)
