    Nice car, I think color would have worked better for most of these shots (namely the car, it's a modern car...doesn't work with B&W) and I see some leveling issues.

    I really like #2 but I think some more PP work would make it pop....and I don't know if it's my eyes or the photo, but it seems like the porch is twisting a bit too...very cool either way lol.

    nice composition in no1 and 5.
    the canted angle in one is interesting and i like the mood and feeling in no 5.
    agree with FattyMcJ the car photo would work better in colors.

    For being black&white photos, they all are too grey, too little true blacks and true whites in them. They either need a serious contrast boost, or you'd need to plan for your black&white photography some more, actually GO for things that you already visualise as a black&white photo when you take it. Look for the necessary contrasts beforehand, aim for black&white, not just convert colour pics.

    Looks like Greystone in north jersey. That's so funny the other day I was thinking, that would be a cool place to go take pictures. Awesome. Don't care much for #1 since it's at an angle. Love #2 really captures the atmosphere. I'd like to see #3 get more creative with the angle or something. #5 is off level as well. These could both be fixed pp pretty easily.

    number 4 + 6 are the only two really catching my attention. Number 1 seems really uneven and unlevelled, but i can see what you were trying to capture. In number i wouldve probaly pulled down than barrier fencing as it wouldve probaly had more character to it but thats just me:lol:
    Im a newby too though just givig my opinion to help you improve good work !

    i like #2 & 4....but it looks to me as if u r using the b&w setting on your camera. i may be wrong....but if im right then it is much better to shoot in color then convert the pics to b&w in your post processing. Like using photoshop, or gimp.org, etc.
    that being said...#2 & 4 are the most interesting to me and i think they would look even better with some more post processing...they do need contrast or the pic becomes washed out.

    For number one I was trying to get a kind of creepy factor but I guess it didn't work

    The chair and gazebos are what kills the "creepiness" for me..oh and the parking lot too.

    #2 I love...although I feel like I want to level it to the left a little...I find my head turning slightly to the right every time I look at it but besides that...I really like the framing in it!

    Not much to say on 3,4 and 5

    The car shots I think should also be in color and on a neutral background...there is too much going on to focus solely on the car...my eye is drawn to about 3 different spots before the car.
