I keep trying to take a different approach to everything as much as possible. Without having anything in mind I went for a ride around just to see if anything stood out.

I think this is one of my fave pics I have ever taken! Found it quite amusing as I rode by so had to stop to take a pic...

This is bizarrely just at the side of the road in the middle of nowhere! I'm a huge fan of Hammer horror movies and spooky compositions/PP.

Found an old mill off the beaten track, the pics of the mill itself didnt really do anything for me but this rusty old water tank had some interesting contrasts.

i really like the first two and the edits. nothing aesthetically pleasing about the last one though.

Thanks for the comments!

Struggled to find an interesting aspect on the water tank really. But I do like it and enjoyed playing with the details in it.

i have some shots like that water tank. usually it includes more of the environment and i'd also apply rule of thirds and shift it to one end of the photo. but thats just what i do.

It is what I did in several shots but the surrounding environment really was not interesting enough.

It was a case of concentrate on the tank or include some worthless surroundings that would totally distract from it and the detail in the ageing of the tank

I personally like the third image. I really like the range of colors and the crop with the brick giving a slight border. Maybe if you could pull some more green from the ivy that might be cool.

That's the funny thing about photography, everybody's eye is a little different.

Love the first two pics. Great POV angle on the crucifix.

Love the crucifix shot. The angle, light and ominous looking clouds all worked together on this one.

I really like them all, you've made great use of the light. The cows are the stand-out for me - just a really neat image. It looks like an illustration - very nice job.

Interesting angle on the crucifix and good exposure.

And the water tank works for me - great combination of colors/textures. I might have moved a step left or right to give the faucet a bit more definition.

You might have gotten a lot more of the texture detail if you had it sidelit. Any chance you had a speedlite and a light stand - you could have thrown some more texture onto it that way. :)

What's most interesting about this shot is the obvious face in the clouds.

Umm.... did you say "obvious"?
Sorry I don't see it.
But when I read the title of this post I just had to open it - I thought it was going to be one image :).
I think all 3 are well done; but the last one might benefit from some increased saturation.

My subject on that 3rd one would have been the faucet, the nice rust color, and the rivets. Perhaps frame it with the faucet at the right 1/3, bring in that crack toward the top and all that nice color.
