    Great start and worth being critiqued.

    1 - Statue seems overexposed. Lost the detail. Flash?

    2 - I don't think it's sharp enough for a close up. Did you use a tripod and remote release?

    3 - Interesting, but I like BW photos with more contrast - more dark things and more light things.

    4 - Not interesting to me.

    5 - Again, I would like more contrast. Great start for something, but I need more.

    6 - Self portraits are an individual thing. Most of us aren't vain enough to simply want to see a picture of ourselves and are looking to say something. I think this one is saying, "I'm lovin' this camera." :)

    These are certainly far better than my first efforts and note my signature below.

    I would really like #2 so much better if it had a deeper DoF, but these look sharp in general. I'm really jealous, I've been saving for a DSLR, and I'm fairly sure mine'll be ordered next month. Congrats sir!

    I think the shots are great. If there was one type of photography I wish I was better at, it would definitely be artsy/abstract shots like these

    Downloaded the trial of Adope Photoshop, its a little... not confusing but just overwhelming. Im familiar with the basic program iPhoto, but idk which program to spend my money toward.
