Good second set, with the second photo I wonder if you could have got a little separation between the teeth of the second cog and the rim of the first by shooting slightly lower?

I like the bird - looks sharp, clean background and well composed.

I can see what you're trying to do with the industrial gear wheels. Had they been lined up (nothing you could do about that), then a tunnel effect may work, but I can't see which of them you are trying to make the main subject.

The boat - I don't think this works. You either need more of the boat, or focus more on details - the name, the rigging or the anchor.

Something more like this? It's not perfect I know but can see what I was trying to achieve.

I would say the Bird is probably the best of the three photos.
The Gears don't look pleasing to my eye because of the blurry foreground, which i would assume is because of the depth of field perspective you chose to use?
However i think i understand what you were trying to achieve there and the subject certainly has the makings of an interesting photo.
And the Boat photo is all a bit of a jumble in it's composition, and my eye doesn't know where to look or where the point of interest is that should be drawing me in.
Please take my comments in the spirit in which they are meant, and that is for constructive criticism.
Im quite new to photography myself and although technically i know my way around my camera, i do sometimes struggle with composition and producing "interesting" photos!
These are just a couple of the things i personally need to work on and improve.
