Abandoned Amusement Park

Went to an abandoned amusement park a while ago, here are the 4 best pictures that don't give away the location. What do you think?

The pics are pretty good. Is it just my browser or do those pictures on your post show up ABSOLUTELY HUGE (impossible to view) on your screen as well ? I went to your imgur gallery, which was way better.

It's hard to be sure without being there, but most pics would probably have a better composition and visual impact with a wider angle lens or a bit more distance from your subject/foreground, as these tend to crowd out the blue sky background, which is a good feature of your pics also. The 1st pic (person on distant roof) is definitely the better-composed of the three.

It's too bad that those colourful walls are backlit on your two better pictures (those with a human subject). This is the kind of locale where you'd really benefit from a "golden hour" visit: that is, just after sunrise or just before sunset. A polarising filter would also do a nice little number on that blue sky, and maybe the graffiti too. If you're a serious photographer (and have cash to burn), a gradual polarising filter (darker on top) would darken the blue sky and even out the exposure... though I can't say it enough: you will get a MUCH better return - for no extra expenditure - if you can visit at a better time of day, weather permitting, of course!

Cant really view the photos on here. Need to resize. Viewed in imgr. Need to work on the overall composition a little, square up shots, level lines. It's hard to predict the sky, but a different time of day or different day altogether would help. Need some clouds, or golden hour. Overall, not bad though, imho.
