    hey there
    im new here (i couldn't find an intro thread, but i might have missed it). im not exactly new to photography, but i just recently began exploring my talent (or lack of lol). im still young (only 15), but i dont think that makes me any less competent.

    the first one has good potential i think. i think that one would be better in B&W and cropped a little bit. the umbrella dominates the person and it woulud be good to keep the attention there with having less of her legs in the picture. probably up to her knees is fine

    i like the 4th picture too. i like the decay on the pipe. maybe theres too much water showing. probably get rid of it up to the ripples

    Many of the color ones are exposed correctly but could use some composition. Here's a helpful link -- http://www.livingroom.org.au/photolog/tips/digital_photography_composition_tips.php

    The 4th picture is very nice, and I agree with lordson.

    I'm 16 and it's nice to see another young person here into photography. I'd suggest taking a few classes while you're young and have the free time. I've taken a bunch and they have benefited me greatly. Even if it's just a short digital course, anything covering the basics will help.

    I'd also suggest a film class -- tons of fun! :p

    Happy shooting,
    - Dylan
