I think I would have posted these as separate threads; you might have found you got more feedback on each one individually.

The bees are very detailed, and don't obviously scream "Beginner". I don't know enough about bees to say whether they're accurate but they certainly look very good.

Barns - It looks to me like you've flattened the perspective somehow (there's no vanishing point), and I don't find the picture convincing because of that.

Barn door - the picture captures a quaint ramshackle charm and I like it.

The bees have very nice detail. Add a shadow and they would be walking on the paper!

The barns are very flat, and lack perspective as Alan pointed out already. Perhaps some additional shadowing under eves, and on sides that away from light, might give them more "life".

The door is also well detailed. You must have put in some time on those bricks. Nice.
