These are just somethings I'd do. I'm no pro, so just tell me to shut it if you dont agree.

1. looks a little crooked. I love the sky and I'd like to see more of it.

2. it looks like you tried to turn down the exposure in the sky (especially the top left) and the clouds look slightly grey. I'd adjust your whites. There is a slider in camera raw or lightroom for this

4. the fence way too out of focus and is kind of distracting. I'd shoot at a smaller aperture and see how it looks.

In shot#1:
If you have the post-processing capability to isolate the purple sky, I think it would be good to de-saturate it a little, or just steer it towards blue instead of magenta.

In shot #2:
You can tone down the washed out brightness of the sky and put it back in....
on top of what you already have here (with a Photoshop layer) That would give you a more dynamic image.

Disagree on #4. I thnk if the fence was in focus the shot would be far too disctracing. With the OoF area your eye is quickly drawn to the flag. Is it a shot that I'd frame and place on a wall? No. But if we're just discussing the comp of the shot that is. I think they did the best they could.

Agreed.
'Depth of field' is an attractor. It is especially effective in portraiture.
That's not the case here, but still... nice job.

All in all nice photos. I gotta say that the first few are a bit overly saturated, and is a little hard on the eyes. Your black and white gas station shot is suburb! Keep it up.

1- Not a fan of the saturation and the image is leaning to the left. Try and keep your lines straight (or straighten after in post)

2- Nice angle. Dont like how the bottom of the building is cut though, makes the image seem not finished

4- Nice image and use of depth of field. One little nit pick is the bit of top of a tree in the lower left, removes from the clean sky. Devil is in the details as they say

I'm not saying have it completely in focus, just not as blown out as it currently is. I think the contrast between the sharp flag and completely blown out fence is a little distracting. That's just my opinion though.
