Great shots Bill. As you say Constructive Critique: Yes then..
Nice background and good sharp subject. Colours look good, not over done.
Composition is OK although I'd probably move #1 a bit more to the left.
The parallel light streaks are distracting and I'd probably clone them out
Also the large nail and the poop could be removed in both and the white object above and to the right on #2
Being very picky here Bill as they're still great shots

Thanks for the comments everyone.

CC noted Kevin, thanks. I had thought about removing the nail.

Per Kevin's suggestion I did replace the above and removed the nail.

Thank you Lee.
