They look like shots that somebody randomly shot while on a walk. Oh, wait, that's exactly what you said they were. Every picture should tell a story. The yellow snakes one was the only one that approached that goal in my mind. I would have tried to get more light on the background in that one.

probably should try and work on my composition little more? thats probably one of my weaknesses is trying to figure out how to make a good shot out of a scene or subject.

#1 would make a great background for a grungy type model.

You know, I live in an area where there's absolutely nothing worth taking a landscape picture of; I don't think that's the case where you live but with the subjects you've shown, I would suggest you try doing what I've learned to do to make an uninteresting subject "picture-worthy". I believe I'm somewhat successful at this because I've had MANY people specifically say that what they love about my pictures is that they each tell a story. So, the next time you're out and you don't have any great landscape material, use your 50mm, get real close to your subject and shoot it from a unique angle. If you need some ideas or just want to see what I'm talking about, click on my link and look at my "Abstracts and Still Life" album. Good luck and keep practising!

I agree. Perfect for that. Or someone posing as a homeless person, sitting there with a smoke.
