    I like #2. If that telephone pole with a transformer on it wasn't there, I would like it a lot more. That's not your fault though.

    I like "driveby" shots done out of a moving car--I'm prone to snapping them myself. But these appear to have been shot from a stopped car--perfectly level horizons, foregrounds that show no motion blur, fairly formal-looking compositions...these do not really "read" as drive-by shots. They are too studied-looking,and as I said, there's no visible motion blur. There's no car window or reflections, no side-view mirror, no windshield wipers,and I'll say it again--no motion blur! As drive-by shots, these are not really successful shots.

    I'm not a big fan of the heavily darkened edges. Driveby shots are one of the *only* genres where a somewhat tilted horizon is actually acceptable and almost a part of the aesthetic; and given that, your level horizons are working against you, IMHO.

    I like the third one. Totally gives me the "farmy" feeling.

    thanks for sharing!

    In my opinion..... AMAZING! I'm not quite sure why, I think it's the vintage look and the vignetting. Sweet shots.

    Both are great pictures. I like the old fashioned look the vignetting gives to the shots.
