Good looking job Alan. How do you propose to finish them? Stain and varnish, or oil perhaps?
PS - It doesn''t make a lot of structural difference but I think it would have looked better if the right-hand diagonal went the other way - just a suggestion for next time.

I agree with Richard with regard to the diagnol brace. Also i would recomend fitting a bolt at the bottom of the right hand gate to the ground to take the strain off the latch. That aside you have a very nice set of gates.

Nice gates we have had a long discussion on this site about the right and wrong way for braces , I have always excepted that the brace on wooden gates should be as the left hand gate ,in compression, and I agree with the others about the right gate hanging as the left. ,
A good job well done George

Hi Alan, Nice job.
The others are right mate, the right hand brace is the wrong way round, its there to prevent the gate from dropping and going out of squire.
It does look good and does keep you dog out of trouble lol.
