    Not bad, but there are way too many to go through and critique. Try narrowing it down to maybe 5 if you want full critiques.

    Sure,

    Watch the focus (some look a little soft) and the horizon lines. A few of them are slanted, and I don't think it was intentional on most of them.

    Also, be careful of posting "snapshots" on here, they will get eaten alive. (Anything that doesn't look well thought out)

    General advice.... well we could sit here all day and give a million tips. The best advise is to keep on shooting. The best thing you could do, is to pick a style of photography to shoot. You seem to be incorporating a lot of different styles but not focusing on any one specific.
    You need more contrast. Your pictures lack a sense of depth. The tones are all pretty level and don't have that *POP that correct settings tones and lighting do. Make sure your photos follow the "rule of thirds" Read this article I wrote:
    How to Frame A Picture Correctly | eHow.com

    Just keep on shooting and you will improve with time.

    Please ignore all the critique you got. The photos don't need more contrast, they do have pop, being amazing at capturing "snap shots" is just another talent look at all the photography for American Apparel and horizon lines don't have to be straight if you don't want them to be. Rules don't apply to to true talent. Just make sure you are making conscious decisions about when to break them to make a photo stronger. Honestly for 14 years old you are so far ahead of the curve it's ridiculous. I'm not saying that all these photos are great I'm just saying I think it's obvious that you have the "eye" as people call it. The fish eye shot of the kids in the parking lot it pretty sweet though. just keep on shooting everyday, maybe start to focus your skills in a particular category that you love and roll with it. In a few years your gonna rock.

    when posting up pictures for CC, please number them, space them and only put up a few (4-5?) that you really want feedback on how to improve the actual image.

    Comments on a whole portfolio are hard to do.

    Some need better focusing
    Some need to be lighter as they are under exposed
    I don't like how some of them are so centered
    The fisheye isn't great for all occasions.

    I like the composition with the Vans Sneaker. However, I think that your main focus is the sneaker so next time try to use some lighting to help it pop from the rest of the image. I really like the beach pictures. It has a very distinct emotion.

    You're better than 95% of the stuff I've seen here. There are a couple that don't do much for me (the house with the blown out lights, the coca-cola one, and the one second one with the fish eye...) but overall you're leaps and bounds ahead of the game. The one with the kid on the beach is awesome, as is the one looking down on the skaters.

    It also appears you have some serious glass (I've never seen an inexpensive fisheye). Keep it up. I won't critique per se because you have a better eye than me, for sure.
