    Alright, I'll bite. I won't C&C your whole photostream, but I'll do a couple.

    I don't know how much aperture control you have on a coolpix. The second one of the lily (Sunset at 2) has potential. Needs to be stopped down (smaller aperture, larger f number) to help with depth of field to keep the stamens in focus. This might require more light to pull off, but that's not a big deal.

    The "I love you edit" also has potential in my eyes. It didn't need to be edited, it needed better light, although the edit gets you some of the way there. In the original the light is very flat. If you'd set a light in the direction of the upper right corner you would have gotten a much more dynamic look.

    Maybe somebody else will C&C the others.

    You won't get many replies unless you post 2 or 3 photos.

    A lot of times people post 8 or 9 and it's just to many to expect people to comment on.

    Keep it to 2 or 3 per thread, and you'll get better feedback.

    I'll make sure to play around more with lighting
