    I like #2. i actually like it quite a bit especially due to the shade variations on the bridge. As for the others: I'm not ecstatic about any of them. The first seems to be missing a subject. All I see are some rocks and trees. It is really hard to make out what it is because the focus is off. The third shot is my second favorite. Although the subject isn't particularly interesting, the composition of the shot seems to work decently although it seems to be slightly underexposed. The last, I don't know why, just doesn't interest me. Maybe someone can give something constructive about it.

    Overall, it is a decent selection especially considering you are shooting from film(?).

    I also really like #2. The rest don't interest me quite as much... maybe using a different angle or DOF will make it more clear of what your focusing on.
