1: Definitely could have used the HDR treatment I feel. The colours in the sky are brilliant, but the rest just feels dull and lifeless.
2: Dunno about this one. The stop sign catches my eye, but then to me, the rest of the picture just lacks interest.
3: Needs a 4" lift, some 33" tires, a winch and a roll cage...Oh, right, the picture!
Honestly, I don't understand what you were going for in this shot. Personally, I would have shifted over a few feet to the left, and tried to work with the perspective between the road and the telephone poles. Perhaps jack up the saturation as well, because as it is, everything seems a little bit brown/gray, and all nearly the same shade.
4: I like this one, the fence post being slightly off center with the excellent textures of the worn/pitted wood and the remaining rusted links of fence instantly catches my attention. Then the grass in soft focus drags my eye off into the distance and finally to the sky. Just a bit of composition issue here though, is that I find the sides of the frame are a bit cluttered with the telephone poles and the rail sign on the right, and the other sign on the left. I think a narrower field of view/getting closer to the fence post would have made the post really pop in this shot.
5: This one I think would have been the second HDR candidate. But primarily for the sky alone. With the sky over exposed, and the ground the almost uniform earth tones, I think this shot would be awesome if the sky was brought back, and leaving the ground as contrast. Sort of an anti-thirds approach, by going half and half. The bright colours of the sky, vs the winter drabnss of the earth.
6: The only thing I can think of that would make this picture better, is if you had put one of the leaves/glass in front to focus on. Dead center. Normally I am sort of against the "dead center" approach, but with this background being so dominant, I think a center-focused object would have stood out brilliantly, with the eye then following the tracks into the sun set. Otherwise, love the angle of the shot, and the colours. The sky being over exposed in this is perfect to me. I'm just saying, have fun with things, move things around as you see fit.
7: Awesome. Nailed it on this one. The glowing tracks, the blacked out/silhouette foreground, and firey sun. All = Great.
8: I really like this one as well. A good contrast between the bottom, middle, and top of the picture, but in a slightly less conventional scaling. The "black" making for a great barrier betwen the stark landscape, and the lovely sunset.
9 & 10: Read #7
Though I do prefer 7 and 10 out of the three.
11: Not really getting it personally.
