Lot of cool shots, #7 really shines for me, especially considering the "texture" topic

#4 and 7 are great as you've managed to exclude a lot of the clutter that surrounded the carriages. The patterns and raw rusting metal look are well captured.

Nice work.

The texture and the repeating patterns work well here. Have you though about converting them to black & white or some sort of monochrome? I can see where that could make the texture of the metal even more pronounced, though the rust red colors do give everything a sense of age.

I agree with Mark (above). B&W or Sepia might give these very interesting shots that edge that makes them more dramatic. I have seen other items of similar texture in Sepia and it puts much more focus on the textures by taking away the color. Good Shots!

THose are some nice images! Very clear.

#7 as black and white didn't work as well as I thought it would (maybe someone can give it a try).

Contrast, curves, levels later, though:

That redone image really pops now. Maybe even needs to be toned down a little bit. Nice set!
