Bob, it seems you posted a while ago and have not been getting any input. I suspect there are at least a couple of reasons. First I am not sure monochrome works well for these images. Personally I am not a big fan of b&w but it can add drama. That does not seem to be the case for these images. They seem a bit bland and the lack of color doesn't help. Secondly the compositions seem weak. You have some leading lines but they don't seem to lead anywhere interesting. You have taken on some tough scenes for capturing the viewer's attention.

I would say the issues are mainly the leading lines. Where do you want our eyes to go nexr?

Thanks for your thoughts - I'll run up the color versions.

Agreed, in the fresh light of another day they are bland - certainly missed capturing the crisp autumn-like breeze and sense of wide open spaces I am not accustomed to seeing (and very much enjoy) in my part of the country.

The first has a strong leading line element, after grabbing attention in the foreground. However, I dont find the pull to the left side of the frame rewarding. Instead, the image seems more a framing for the hill behind. Cant do it now, but I am curious if a L/R flip strengthens the image. However, I dont this one is a keeper.
Second feels a bit lacking as well. The lines in the field dont offer much reward as they pull to the distance. I find the toning and contrast a bit flat.
