Number your photos next time to make them easier to distinguish for C&C
One with the Horse:
I think you can crop out part the left side of your shot and get rid off the partial feet and hands. I don't think it really does anything for the shot. Your background is also overexposed in relevance to your subject.
Too much empty space on the leftside I think. I would personally frame this cropping more of the ramp on his left and focusing on him and on the crowd. I would've loved to see his feet on this shot.
Too much empty space on the top of his head. This can definetly do wth less sky. There's an intersting scenario going on the background with the two guys looking towards the camera. Looks like they're checking out the blinker
Man in the red shirt:
Nothing special on this. Doesn't really tell me anything.
This is my favorite shot. I like the lines and how you kept everything in focus. The colors are very appealing. I would've just tilted the camera down a bit lower to frame the buttom layer of those yellow receptacles where you shoot the water into.
Hmm don't know where you were trying to do here. Just looks like a snapshot to me.
I think the trick to photography is looking at something and already picturing what your going to be framing in your head before you even pick that camera up. Try visualizing it even before you touch that camera. In the past I used my hands to form a frame and lay it over my subjects in the air. Its good practice but it takes a while to get the habit of visualizing something before you shoot. You may have less shots however I promise you the quality will improve. Otherwise, everything will be nothing but snapshots and a few lucky charms. I recommend starting with stationary subjects at first so you can take all the time in the world to use your imagination. Get use to the artistic side of it then fine tune it with the technical know hows later. It's good that your starting young.
