    I tried to get some good shots of this old wreck, but I had to cut it short because my hands were starting to hurt. I have put these through editing, but I would like some feedback. Thanks!

    Color version -- if these files are low quality, it's because I had to save them down to get them to post.

    I tend to resize my shots to between 1500-2500px on the long edge.

    Are you new to photography?

    Your shots seem a bit muddled, compositionally. Photography is not only about the subject, but also about using light and shade to provide emphasis, lead the viewer through the scene and create mood. Try using compositional ideas (light, shade, leading lines, symmetry, zig zag paterns, perspective etc) to create a balanced image and direct a viewers eye through the photograph.

    I think you have a great start! My advice would be to try and get 4-5 different angles or compositions for each shot. This will help with creativity. These seem like you walked up and shot the subject without really moving around or composing the shot much. Think about shooting close up, from above, from behind or the side. Back lit vs front lit etc. Practicing this exercise will help you see more unique photo opportunities.

    Why did you shoot these subjects? What was your purpose? What were you trying to accomplish?
