    For one, don't center everything... read up on the rule of thirds, your photos will be much more interesting.

    Second, and most important... should have said this first, but I type like I talk - You seem to have 'the eye', I'm jealous.

    Only one that really bothers me is the first one, the bright green leaves in the background overpower what appears to be your subject of interest which is underexposed.

    Number 4 is my favorite of them all, very sharp!

    Here's a good read on it:
    Rule of Thirds

    By 'the eye' I mean you seem to be able to find good subjects and not just shoot hoping for the best which a lot of people seem to do. I have to fight it daily, some people can just see it naturally.

    Its called the rule of thirds. A standard photographic rule where things are lined up on their points of interests. Draw 3 vertical lines and 3 horizontal lines, all equally spaced. The intersection of each line are the points of interest. My written explanation totally sucks, so I'd suggest doing some google searches to see what its about.


    When looking for feedback, instead of just putting up a bunch of images, I'd highly suggest filtering through your images and chosing the 3-5 that you find stand out and are great or the ones you feel could be way better and posting those up. Having too many pictures usually doesn't net direct input. Make sure to number them as well so people can refer to them easily :)

    Overall, as stated, they are all very centered. I find many of them have odd shadows, probably due to shooting on a sunny day. Some have busy backgrounds (ie things that are distracting in the back) and a few others need to be cropped to remove unecessary petals from other flowers in them.
