First one is especially nice IMO. Very clear and nice use of Silver Efex I'm guessing. Art quality for sure. Dead or not, it's alive...

To me a good photographer can take advantage of almost any subject around her. Take yesterday for example, the bunch of guys I was with left a really rich location early. From talking to one of them it was because they only perceived the meetup as a scouting mission with an idea of coming back when things green up. Fine and dandy, but you've dragged your frigging view camera for a mile already...use the thing (yeah, he brings a 6x6 into the woods on a tripod). Eh...I know there are different styles, but when I've taken the trouble to go out and explore an area I try to be as immersive as I can and find something worthy.

WD....well said and I couldn't agree more.
There isn't a lot of green time here in Calgary and IMO one has to be a bit more creative in the outside environment. I've taken on the idea of trying to make "a sow's ear into a silk purse" theory with what we do have....especially this time of year when the snow is gone and everything is monotone and beige/brown. Otherwise it's wait until May when the flowers come out and I'm not prepared to do that. :)
