    These are bad for a 38 year old. I think you could've done a lot better.

    I'm not a fan of selective coloring.

    I think this might be a composition where the reverse of 1/3 foreground and 2/3 sky might apply. There is no detail in the sky, but the fog in the distant background does set a mood.

    The subject is too centered for my taste.

    I would clone out the telephone poles.

    I would have preferred to have seen some semblance of water.

    Thanks for sharing. Keep practicing and posting.

    Sorry, the second image did not appear on my first C&C.

    The 2nd shot sucks.

    Thanks for all the C&C so far, joking and serious.

    Shot 1:
    There's actually not much selective coloring going on here... this was taken in the winter so everything is dead and colorless anyway, with the exception of that boat. I did boost the color in the boat, but the fog and seasons played a huge part in the monotone surroundings. So much so that it made me stop my truck and back up 1/4 mile for the shot.

    Shot 2 I should maybe explain as well:

    It's the bus I ride to work... this was taken in the winter, which already gives a lifeless feel, add to that no sun and darkness when you leave and darkness when you get home.

    I wanted to portray that emotion... dead, lifeless, mundane emotion.
