good colors and exposure on this one.. technically speaking this is a gem.. i would have preferred a more dynamic composition though.. nonetheless its a good shot..

How about this one Dustin? Alittle more angle and some thin clouds.

Dawg,

much better! i much prefer the angle and composition on this shot over the first.. though i wish that building were not there on the left hand side of the frame, not much you can do there.. you could play with the crop on the left side and do some cloning, but not sure if it could be made to look natural or not.. nevertheless i like the angle of this shot much better and the exposure is still spot on... call me old-fashioned but this one seems to be a mono conversion candidate..

I like the first shot better, but with a little more foreground and less sky.

The second photo, the green shed is a little distracting.

Nice caboose!

Thanks for commenting guy's. I am trying to get better at my composition and everyone hear has been a great help and inspiration. Thanks again! As for the mono conversion, I probably won't try it right now as my cararacts won't let me see B&W or Grayscale too well right now.
