    I've been thinking of how to shoot these for a while and finally got around to doing so. Critique is welcome.

    For me, I think these lack contrast and show too much middle grey.

    I don't think the pot adds to the photo in #1 & 4. I also think a much larger aperture may help by isolating the front pillar and hinting the second.

    I dislike fences, so #3 is a no go for me. (personal perspective only)

    I think there is a good photo in that spot for you. You just need to find it.

    Thanks, kundalini, I took some of your advice and tried again. I think these came out a little more interesting. They were taken in the late afternoon, so there was different lighting to work with, not sure if I like it as it over/underexposed some spots.

    I like the first one of the second series. Dramatic.

    (By the way...did you have grandparents whose first names started with A and N?)

    Thanks.

    Not an A or an N in grandparents or great-grandparents.
