Newbie - Critique me
Hello, I Have been into Photography for many years and I have been practicing photography on and off for as many years but really not all that seriously till I got my DSLR about 7 years ago. Wild life and landscapes in black and white are my favorite images to capture, but I do like to dable with other subjects as well.
I would love some CC on a few of my favorite images. I have tried to include as much Image info I can think of to include not sure if it will help or not. Each image has had some editing done to it but I have attempted to no do too much to them.

First two images are pretty nice! The last two are bit busy.
I like #1 and #3 here.
1 is a really nice B&W conversion. My big issue is that you cut off their feet. I would prefer the composition include the feet on that one.
3 is a bit busy, but is nicely exposed and has a smooth, almost dreamy, look that I really appreciate.
1 and 3 for me. I really like 1, however, in addition to the feet comment, I think it might be over sharpened, I can see artifacts on the out of focus calf on the right.
Like the flamingos image - nice work!

I liked #1 and #3. Although #1 looks to be a bit noisy (film grain) in my opinion. However it does remind me of the old B&W photo's. I really like the softness of #3. #4, the rock is out of focus, and I understand you were photographing the Elk. Hope this will help you.
Welcome, I like 1 and 3, however I think 1 is a bit over processed, too sharp perhaps. I agree with the comment above about the not capturing the feet, a potential solution is to crop it even further up to the "knee" (the carpal joint).
Good work..nice images.
I would agree with those that have commented regarding the "feet" for image #1. However, overall I really like the BW conversion, makes for a very interesting picture.
The flamingos take #1 for me. Good composition and color. Possibly a slight crop off the top, to eliminate some of the bare foliage, might make for a cleaner image.
Oh BTW "elk on your property..." I need to find better a better backyard!!
Look forward to seeing more of your work.
