What style?

Hi, i'm new to photography and enjoy it a lot. I take mostly black and white pictures but can't figure out what style it is. Landscape? Experimental? Fine art? Crap?

I'd say you have a mixed bag here ranging from Structural / Architectural, to Landscapes, and a Portrait.

I, personally, especially like the final image of the person walking down the road.

Yes, quite a mix of styles. That's the joy of being new to photography - everything is both interesting and exciting.

I think it takes time to develop and understand your 'style'. My own grew organically, and from a realization that images that continued to be my favorites over the years tended to have similar qualities.

Keep shooting everything you love and allow your style to evolve - you certainly have a good eye so keep experimenting.

I like the diversity of your photography, my favorites are the view of the lake, it has a foggy moody feel to it, and the bicycle handle bar, it to me is a strong yet simple image of a subject that many including my self would over look.

Just a couple of constructive comments on these two images.
I am drawn to the lake image also, but it feels unbalanced. All of the visual weight and interest is on the right side of the frame. I feel this would benefit from something dark in the water, lower left, like a rock. That would help the eye travel across the frame.

Interestingly I fell that the bicycle shot works for the same reason- the out of focus twig on the left acts as a counterweight to the handlebars. I thing if this were removed (you could test in Most photo editors) the image would not be so strong.
