I don't really like version 1 - but versions 2 & 3 look good to me.

Its a bit desolate - so you couldn't really add anything to fill out the frame.

version #2
To the left of the power pole,there is a ghostly outline of a weed that needs to be removed.

I like version 1 (B&W) the best. I think it could do with an overall contrast bump and maybe a bit of dodging and burning to enhance the foreground grass, corrugated roof etc.

The B/W version of this picture works the best, considering the subject matter and the fact that the color doesn't really add anything. However, the highlights are blown, and the image is well under-exposed. Try reading up on "exposing to the right" (ETTR)...this will help you to bring out shadow details without blowing out the highlights. Your picture of the cockatoo was also underexposed, so the underexposure seems to be a common to your shots. ETTR will help you...

For some reason or other, my edit response didn't go thru. Anyway, this would be a very good use for a GND filter to balance the exposure between the sky and building.

The black and white one evokes a greater emotional response of sadness ;)

Don't like the greenish color of the siding in the colored version. Sorry, doesn't do it for me, same with the green in the tree.

The telephone pole is great. Even that one is almost ready to collapse and fall down.

B & W for me. But might consider cropping out the telephone pole.

I hould definitly make the telephone pole disappear with photoshop by creating the back scenery behind it, and keep the composition as it is. Maybe the image could win some inpact by leavy the house more to the right.
