    Maybe crop a little off the top of the first one? They are so grainy..Was that done with the editing?
    I'm still a complete noob myself...so i cant really give real C&C....

    good try! With images like these there needs to be that certain something that makes it stand out from the others....a dramatic sky or evening light.....something......keep shooting and it will happen

    Even though you were going for an old look, its too grainy. Plus the newer vehicles in the shot give it away. You should be able to play with the colors enough to get the look you want without being grainy.

    Yeah, the grain gotta go- it's not workin here.

    The two B&W's are too grey, you need more contrast for a good B&W. Looks like an awesome place for maybe some cool night time shots (not sure how well it is lit, but the mills around here are neat a night) Maybe try and get a more dramatic sky like someone above said.

    the two dog snapshots are just that, snapshots.... nothing special. Nice job on removing the leash from the pics, you left the shadow in the first.

    the picture with the shed would look good if it was larger in the shot i think, and also more contrast as has been said already. looks too washed out so try messing with the levels in photoshop or something.

    In the shots of the dog the whites are VERY blown out. In some areas you cant see the difference between the dog's fur and the snow. In the landscape shots there is lots of grain as said before. I like the feel of them though. Keep shooting!

    there was a little bit of graininess added in photoshop here is the first one again with a little more cropping and no added graininess
    [​IMG]
    and the original picture i was a little bit to far away for the shot so it is not as good as the shot could of been i think
    [​IMG]
    and here is another try at the shed

    The last two here are much better. I love the last one of the barn.
    Maybe someone else will C&C them...but to me, they looked better before all the editing!

    I think that the second one of the shed looks a TON better. Much better on the contrast, and no more grain.

    The first sets looks awfully like pointillism.
