My favourite is #4 - a great combination of texture, colour, and contrast with the shadows. I see what you were trying to do with #1, but I think you need the curb to start further into a corner, and some way to make the 'background' elements seem farther away... shoot at a wider angle, be lower to the ground, and give the camera a slightly upward tilt to make the distance seem bigger perhaps.

Nice work!

I agree with this... The wider lens would do the trick I think.

I'm my no means a professional, but I love the lest shot. Really makes me long for autumn and leaves. Great light.

great tips Plymer. Really appreciate it. I think you got what I was trying to do. It was first time trying this kind of shot, good for learning. I might get back to this place and try it again.

Thanks a lot

wow, nice pictures - except for the first one, which is technically good, but the picture doesn't say anything but broken curb

Thanks BBR, the first one I didn't really get it right. I'll try something different next time. Cheers
