Thank you all for the feedback, this is my first "real" effort to get out and shoot things outside of my kids and people in general.

I attempted to add a vignette to take the emphasis off of the branches in the flag shot but I may go back and remove them completely. I think it loses something though when cropped tighter...

The shot of the sign was really only taken because I have been reading up on "hyperfocal distance" and had never accounted for it. I was playing and found something that stood out for me, I tried to straighten it last night based on inputs here and never found anything that made the frame look "right." This is taken at the foothills of a mountain range and there are so many odd slopes that "level" is pretty much a myth.

The shot of the crosses, which was my favorite of the bunch I'm looking for an input. Does the reversed text on the back fence distract? Should I shoot it wider or longer focal length to blur more?
