Re: Some suggestions.

See if I can recall them:

Shot 1.  Too much DOF try f/2.8 on an APS/C camera.

Shot 2. Not bad

Shot 3.  Same as 1. blur out the BG with more open aperture or normal lens and stand back.

I forget.  The one with the gears on the ground needs the specks in the pavement blurred out and shadows pulled.  The last one has no subject to provide interest.  Sorry I've reached my memory capacity.  General rule of thumb for composition is to use the rule of thirds or center, for instance, the race car in that one and isolate the subject, once you decide what it is, by adding nice bokeh to the BG.  Hope that helps.
