Thanks for looking, all of you! In my two days of photography I've found the best part is letting people see the stuff you take:-)

Thanks for all the compliments. I have a question though bigdawg, when you say you like the composition, is that referring to the angle the pictures are taken at? I'm not familiar with the term. (I know that must be a really newbish question, but I've only had my camera for 3 days):-)

The composition of a photo is the overall way, including angle of subjects, how the light is used and placement of main subject in the photo! I like for instance the angle of the top board in relation to the nail. Also a rusty nail or spike works here because of the aged timbers. The lighting is almost perfect amd the colors strong and add to the aged feeling! Also the main subject the nail is offset to the right just enough to add interest to the photo by making you look at more than just the nail. Good composition can be different things to different people! I just like what I see and if asked try to describe why I like it!

PS focus in this one and depth of field help bring the main subject out. Even if you didn't think your way to this shot you show a good eye for composition. Some folks are just born with the knack!

Alright, thanks for the explanation.

I would love to pretend I took those shots with all those things in mind and carefully planned it out, but I'm not that good yet. Now that I know, I'll have to try and compose my future shots more carefully.

Don't try too hard or all the fun will leave! You show some natural ability with the composition anyway! A famous photographer named Ansel Adams once said..."Being a good photographer is knowing where to stand." You seem to be ahead on that one already!!
