    I like them! Reminds me of Urban photography, which is my favorite.

    Some are good, but some don't seem very interesting to me, like #5 and #6. I think you needed to get closer like you did in #3, which is my favourite. Actually, I do love that photo. :)

    I think that the 50 mm f/1.8 lense, which is very cheap, would have worked well here --- something that could get you a smaller depth of field. Well, a smaller depth of field and a bit closer to things.

    I also wonder what the last photo would have looked like if you zoomed out a bit more, or even used your legs and stood further away. :confused:

    That is one thing I am working on now, getting a 50 1.8. Its tough with me going to be paying my school loans pretty soon. Also on the last photo it really wasn't as intersting if I had zoomed back or moved away from the building. I belive I have a few shots, I will post them when I find them.

    Wow those are clear shots! Wish my little Canon could focus like that.

    The machine parts look like... well machine parts, not much there for me.. but the last pic is interesting, maybe try a few other anges on the machine parts or zoom in a little more.

    I like the last one with the brick and striped poll...the tractor ones are kind of underwhelming - just my opinion.

    Yeah, please. I can almost imagine the ground and think it would have been better to include it.

    I like #3 and #5 the best because they are more simplistic than the others that look at the entire machine. Seeing single parts lets the viewer use a bit of imagination. The complexity of the part is interesting enough to have it's own photograph. I also like the rust on all of the parts that you photographed. I think they look more realistic than if they were nice and shiny.

    Thats totally understandable, each has their own opinion. I was just happy to be able to shoot while at work. And worked with what I had in front of me.

    Perhaps you should try going back and shooting the same subjects but this time with shallower depth of field and in B+W. That's my opinion.

    Here is another shot of the mill/ loading area, didn'thave any closer images, but you'll get an idea of what was around there.
