    I like the splatters you got on your painting, very clean actually. Both of them are pretty nice.

    As far as this set of photos, I'd say they're mostly snap shots again :| most of them are out of focus, and ignoring the PP just not that interesting. You aren't really designating a subject or point of interest, you have things that are the focal point but they just don't finish up the image or tell a story in anyway.

    I think what is really holding you back is that you just need to stop, think, and really examine the area. Look around and study what is going on, learn to look for lighting and interesting spots that could help you out with lighting. Compose slowly, even if the subject is moving if you compose quickly and miss the shot it still isn't a shot worth keeping.

    Most of what you shoot is still, though, so you can take your time and really check the composition as well as focus.

    I think #1 is a nice shot. I like the PP. Nice line and form. Simple, effective. If I *had* to nit pick, I wish the ball was just a couple inches more away from the wall.

    I can get behind #6 as well, just wish it was pulled out a hair more.

    Why did you not bother to straighten #5, I mean, you love photoshop, and there are tools for that.

    don't blame your equipment. a crooked tripod is an easy fix. or you could fix it in photoshop.

    honestly those paintings you posted are the best things you ever posted here.

    first shot is the only good one imo

    I'm new to photography but these are all just my opinions:

    #1: I like it. Although the background is confusing for me. Maybe if it was on a basketball court or something, it'd be more fitting. That's just me
    #2: It's a little crooked (tilted to the right a touch). And it doesn't look centered. Just little things that throw it off for me on pictures like that. I don't get what I'm looking at either lol.
    #3: If you were trying to focus on the flower, focus more :D. It's still a little blurry.
    #4: I personally don't like the multi-color thing going on. The house is crooked, the subject (if it's that little machine) is out of focus.. I'm not sure what to make of it.
    #5: Again, blurry. Don't know what's going on.
    #6: Too dark IMO. I don't like the coloring (how you left some stuff b/w and some stuff color). Is that contrast or something? Looks too..."rich"?

    You gave me an excuse. You didn't answer my question.
    Why didn't you straighten it in photoshop? You love PP and that is part of PP.

    #6, I think it's a little tight. I just think with a little more of the scene, it might be that much better.

    As for the bonus garbage...
