    I think you are still struggling to find a subject. There's just not much to look at to put it nicely. For any picture to work there has to be either something extraordinary or a pleasing composition. These have neither in my honest opinion.

    These are landscapes, but as pointed out above, they really lack a main subject, or a "draw". There are generally two types of landscape: (1) Those that show a large scene from a long distance, with enough that the image itself becomes the subject; and (2) those that have a distinct subject such as a lone tree or similar. Unfortunately, these don't really fit either. They're not big enough to be the former, and lack the subject for the latter.

    What in them catches your eye? Look carefully at each one, and tell us what you see that holds your eye.

    Frame 3645 has some nice stuff going on in it, in the distance. The problem is that you have a short lens length in use on these...that makes the distant things very SMALL, and the distances are long in open farmland like that. You do not have large, exciting, compelling foreground objects either. The problems in these images are based on 1) the situation, open farmland and 2)insufficient foreground interest 3) lack of lenswork skill and lack of lens options.

    These photos are about what most people shoot for the first couple of years, until they get some photography instruction, or until they have access to a lens like a 70-300mm or 50-250mm tele-zoom lens.

    Look at your frame, DSC DSC3645_cropped.jpg 3645, cropped to simulate a 250mm lens, more or less... the new vineyard contrasted against the scrubby old woods...at sunset time...this is just a matter of literally narrowing the field of view, via cropping.

    So overcome it by doing some good post-work -- I think that was Derrel's point. He just cropped that picture. You could do the same.
