Yellow Gin - more views

I spent some more time playing around with that interesting building at the Yellow Gin. Here are some that I like. Any and all comments always welcome.

I think this was the one that caused all the discussion the first time around...

I really like all, but the second one is really nice for portraiture...

It's kind of to much to critique at one time. In the second one the pole splits the image right down the middle which hurts it. I think you need a better subject or at least another element for interest. It's always good to when covering a subject like this to get some close ups as well of other things around the area of interest.

Hmm.  I actually like that division, and I frequently divide my images in two.

I actually have an entire book on this particular cotton GIN which you can see for free if you care to.  Since doing the book I've gotten more access and shot a lot more stuff and so I hope to be revising the book at some point.  Next year when the crop is being processed I hope to get some dynamic images of the entire processing operation, but my interest is purely esthetic, not documentary.

This particular exercise was just my wanting to play around with the patterns of this particular building as a result of a conversation I had with someone else regarding that second image.  I love patterns, and this was an attempt to take these patterns and make them work.  I guess, for you, they didn't.   That's cool.  I do appreciate your taking the time to share your thinking with me.
