The second shot is great. I would tilt the picture a tiny bit to make the building lines to be more vertical or do some straightening of the picture.

My advice is to try to figure out why the first shot is a 'nothing' shot, and the second it a good photograph. They you will be able to take more good photographs.

I would say the second one is good enough to say that you definitely do have some idea of both composition and processing.

A friend of mine was showing me a bunch of similar flower photos and was wondering why it didn't get approval to be posted on a photo website. The picture was accurate and well shot like the first one shown in this thread. I told her that it was probably that they've seen a million of these single flower shots and that they wanted more interesting shots that tell a story.

Second shot is good presentation of train station. Flower shot is missing main object isolation, IMO. Left and right are heavy.

A lot of bee pictures. People can do whatever they want of course, but - My own rule, partly because when I see others do it I tend to just start skipping over photos, is to take the best one or two photos of a given subject and post them. You might like all those bee pictures, but they do start to seem the same.

Thank you, I agree. That was a slight technical hitch. I uploaded all accidentally ߘ

Going back to the first two pictures I think it's better if taking a single flower that's all you should take i.e. exclude others, especially if they are only a part like the white one.

I like the station shot but it needs a steam train in it! I took a similar shot in Dorset and waited ages for one to appear.

I've also got a similar shot on a canal and it's crying out for a narrow boat to provide some additional interest and fill some empty space.

Love the second shot. Would like to see if you could show the entire tower/steeple on the building on the left. If the top is only slightly out of the picture, then it would be good to include. If it is a lot higher, then perhaps there is no choice.

A very minor point, but I don't quite like how the "Shapes" sign appears to be balancing on the tip of the lamppost.

And I would probably crop out the telephone pole on the right, but again, very minor.
