Anyone need a shave

We had a patch of warm weather so I decided to take the camera out for a rare winter trip. It is my first time shooting a specific location this year so I figured I would get some practice in, so feel free to be honest and brutal. This is Remington Electric Shavers, and I think it was abandoned in the early 2000s but I could be wrong

They all look great. I'm no photo expert, but I would say that they would be really cool if you punched up the color on some of the details of the photos.

For instance; Number two has a blue rail item in the foreground, and a peeling green wall on the back. If those had a little more hue, they would really jump out from the rest of the grey area surrounding it. I don't want to say "HDR", since some folks here have a blood feud against it, but something along that line might be neat too. Other than that, the composition and other settings seem spot on.

Nice work!

Thanks for the kind words dude. In general I try to do very little photoshoping on my pics; but I see what ya mean.

Numbers 3, 4, and 10 are definitely my favorites. For one, they have good composition and interesting subjects. However, these exposure and balance of light in these images is really what makes them stand out. The other shots have a lot very dark shadows and pretty bright highlights, just too much contrast for my taste. I know this is difficult to capture well in these lighting situations, maybe give some post-processing a shot or experiment with different ISO/shutter/aperture combinations, maybe graduated ND filters. This way some of the incredible details you've captured with those like #4 can be more apparent in every shot! Good work and good luck!

Solid advice and thanks for the feedback. I may even start playing with filters in general I don't use them but I started to think they may help.
