    (very briefly)

    Rail yard has possibilities.

    Chess game needs better frame.

    Other three are nothing special.

    If I may make a suggestion; please post only one photograph per thread. Please search the forums for a thread about how to post for critique. Read that thread and do that.

    For much more detailed critique, post one photograph and give the specifics, as outlined in that thread.

    What I look for is; what you tried to portray, what you did to get the image, what specific gear you used, and ask at least one considered question in your original post.

    Otherwise, you're wasting my time and yours.

    All of them are far too busy. Yes, I agree the railroad shot has a lot of potential. But the skyline adds needless clutter and the sky itself detracts from the intended subject. They pretty much suffer from the affliction I call Unclear Subject Identification. My eyes wander around looking for the intended subject. Is it the bridge or the people on it? The guy walking, the bus or the girl wearing the backpack? And the musician just disappears into the people seated behind him.

    I like the first photo, of the two young couples sitting on the bridge members...kind of a nice, voyeuristic vibe going on. Lots to look at in the shot. The couples on the bridge shot is, I think, the best of these pictures.

    I like the bridge best. If you'd cropped the chess one abit tighter to the 3 players/observer, it would be nicer IMO.

    Photographic composition is something many people have trouble with. Try to find books from which to study composition. If you have a free public library, begin there, and then search the internet. This will take some time and effort, so keep working at it.

    I chose two of your shots to show you how I would crop them. Others might choose to do something different.

    1 and 4 are interesting to me. the rest are meh, imho. but all need a bit of extra contrast in the processing/conversion.
