Take an everyday activity and place it in an unusual context.

Outdoor Laundry Machines
Outdoor Laundry Machines in self-portable containers

Regardless of the version, they're still just shots of a washer, dryer and hot water heater. I guess I really dont know what you are going for here. If you could elaborate a tad....

Because of your choice of lighting(or lack thereof) you aren't able to convey the unusual context. All I see are 2 washer/dryers and a water heater.

If #3 was cropped so the machines were off center, it might work better. I kind of like #2 as a composition, but want more foreground, as in #3. None of them are quite right, #1 does nothing for me. #2 & #3 have potential but the focus seems off and sharp, crisp lines would be better. Good subject for the concept, that gravelly almost talus foreground is a good element for it. So it does seem possible that more lighting on the surroundings would make the concept clearer.

As a record shot, these are pretty good. However, I tend to agree that it's not wall hanging material unless you are into white goods.

"Take an everyday activity and place it in an unusual context." - I don't see an unusual context here. I suppose if I had to choose one, #3 would be my pick, but still, I'm not blown away by any of them. I would think photographing someone outside doing a purely inside task would be more on par to your theme.
