I've just got underway working on a series of Eastern NC. This will be a work in progress. I'll be Shooting the old and worn out to the most modern aspect in ENC. I'll post more here in this thread as time goes by. People will be a tough nut to crack as most around here do not like their photo taken and plastered all over the internet in this current climate. I'm not the artsy fartsy type guy but I do like a good and interesting shot and any critiquing will be much appreciated. Thanks

The first one I think I get the feel you are trying to convey.

The horizontal shadows in the foreground distract from going back to the building. It makes me notice two things: the piece of lumber by the water held up with the stakes and the uppermost lines lead to a very small portion of asphalt. Neither of these add to the shot. Possibly moving a few feet to the left would have eliminated both of these from view along with the fire hydrant and power poles.

For me the second one is too dark. Way too much dark space that doesn't tell me anything about what the story is here. Shoot it too bring the colors of the foliage out which would still contrast well with the sky.

My two cents only.

Looking forward to this series, kinda love ENC, haven't figured out why though, lol! Is it possible for you to include the towns your shots are from?

I like the first shot better than the 2nd, would have been nice to see more of the building, looks to be exposed well.

Second shot seems a little underexposed or something. Also, the silos appear to be leaning to the right some.

Agree about seeing more of the old structure in #1.
In #2 you might brighten it a bit and straighten the verticals.

Yes, on Number 1, there is too much foreground and not enough of the interesting house. It is distracting. I would go back and shoot this again. Great potential.
