The saddest words in there for me were "closed" & "pub". Two words that should never
be in the same sentence. *
I was looking at V1 & thinking what a shame it was nobody had climbed up there and removed that tree. It's starting to do some real damage to the lovely facade.
Versions 1 & 3 look a little oversharpened, or possibly a touch high for contrast. Otherwise they are fine record shots.
V2 is my favourite of the bunch. All it needed was some bored yobbo to heave half a housebrick through the window to complete the look.
As far as manipulation & correction are concerned, there's only one rule; Do I like it?
& only one judge is totally correct about your photos; You.
Don't worry about following rules, unless you intend to enter a competition (when you'll be able to get a set of rules, so you know exactly what you can & can't do). It's all an opinion anyway, as Bren pointed out. & the only one that matters is yours. If someone else likes it too, that's a bonus. Just make sure that first & foremost, you
are happy with your photos.
* I got the bus home yesterday, it was only about a 7 mile journey, mostly along a major road where you don't expect to see them, but in that distance I saw 5 pubs, all boarded up. I was inconsolable when I got home. It still brings a shiver to my spine when I think about it.
