    Well I can't rave about them coz it's just stuff, I can't go wow what an amazing shot of a MS mouse. And I realise that you don't have the fancy schmancy gear either So...
    They all look a little dark, try different metering modes and blow the white out more.
    The lens shots are crooked. Are they handheld?
    The 3rd lens looks like it's got a touch of camera shake but it might be compression for the web.
    Top nail is curiously good but I like hanging around hardware stores.
    Bottom nail doesn't look like the point is focused sharply.

    All in all I think you made a great effort that you will benefit from greatly.

    Good luck!

    i think the side light is a bit weak ... lots of detail gets lost because parts are underexposed.

    take the mouse for example, the MS logo is almost in the shade.

    the last two good to explain DOF to beginners.
