A bit of a 'decay' theme for two days shooting

I've had two days off. Our little one is being looked after by my parents. The wife is sleeping mostly - recovering from two night shifts back to back, and for the first time in a fair while, I've had oodles of time to get snapping. Plus my K20D and 50-135 will be sent off for repair soon, so thought i'd do a big shooting spree.

I've been working with the theme of decay to give me a creative push, let me know what you think:

all shots were taken with the 18-55MKII at 18mm and F8:



















And this one too while not part of the decay theme, I just love the clouds:

Very nice. Checked out your Flickr stream, and I like the color versions of the shipwreck even more.

Excellent apart from No 3, where the blown out sky spoils the shot for me. Maybe a case for HDR there?

Otherwise, splendid location that you've made very good use of.
Best regards, John

I like the 2nd one. The sky is great and the angle is good.

Also like number 5, Not sure why but theres something about it....

And 7 well I just love the sky and the reflection in the water.

All good pics IMO tho

Ok...i've added in some sky from a different shot I took today (cheating a bit, but hey, I can blame John)

Don't worry, I have broad shoulders!

Getting better, but now losing detail in the stonework. It's been an interesting progression, but none of the other very fine shots needed this.
Best regards, John

Think I prefer it without the sky actually, think it adds to the bleakness of it.

I quite like how this has progressed...

It's a collaborative effort!

So....how about this one?
