The pics are good Robert, and your English is much better than my German. I especially like No 1 & 3.

Welcome to the forum! And thank you for sharing your photos, Indian Summer in Germany is my favourite but the three other photos are very well done. Don't worry for your english.

I particularly like #2. Have you thought about cropping out most of the sky to emphasize the horizontal nature of the scene?

Welcome Robert!  I like all the shots you posted, especially "Foggy".  You framed the roof nicely with the branches.  Please continue to post your work here.  You seem to have a great eye for composition!

Rob, As soon as I saw the pictures I knew someone would suggest cropping #2, which, incidentally, is the best of a very good lot. And Peter didn't disappoint me. Don't even consider cropping it. The horizon is exactly where it should be: near the center of the picture. A centered horizon gives a feeling of stasis (equilibrium), which is exactly what you want in this minimalist shot where, incidentally, you can tell the normal direction of the wind by looking at that single, exposed tree. I also like #4 very much. It's sort of a German version of Walker Evans's approach to towns and cities.

Good shooting, and welcome.

Lovely photos, I especially like the first two.  I think the composition of the 2nd one is perfect as is, no need to crop it IMO.

Welcome to the forum. I like them all. They have that older Minolta quality to them, before they became Sony. You have an interesting format. It's almost 2 to 1. Most are 2 to 3 or 3 to 4 ratios. Is that a function of the camera, or is that the way you choose to crop the images?

I never change a photo if its ready, but the suggestion I get here I can take  into the next workflow for similar picture like that    Thanks for your feedback.

That are Crops (most just little) the Sony only can 3:2 and 16 : 9 , I dont like the static "DIN" formats what otherwise gives me a problem if Ill buy pictureframes   The "Minolta" Colors are really great , but sometimes to "warm"
