    I am fairly new to photography, and looking to improve my technique. Here are 5 pics I took that I would like some feedback on. Thanks.

    #1. I is great!...I would crop more of the bottom off...make the shed closer to you
    #3 & 5. I love!

    2 & 4 I don't really care for.

    Have you done any editing to these? They seem a bit dull. Maybe saturate them more in PS? Mind if I try an edit (your profile says not too)...trying to practice lol.

    I would adjust some brightness and definitely contrast.

    Why is the shed picture really orange? Was it taken like that or did you PP like that?

    I just added a bronze filter to it. Here is the original.

    I just figured out how to change that in my profile.

    I haven't done any editing to them other than cropping a couple. If you'd like to edit them, go for it. I'd like to see how they come out.

    I think you're on the right track with all these photos. It seems to me that you're shooting pictures at mid-day when the light is harsh. The last two in particular are overwhelmed with harsh light and shadows. If you're going to shoot landscapes, shoot early and shoot late. You'll be surprised at how much your images improve. I realize that it is not always possible though.

    I'll try that. These shots were taken between 2pm and 3pm.

    ATX, those came out really well. I really like what you did with the barn.
