    I love the 2nd one, I would try to PS out your shadow, other than that love the leaning tree and the contrast.

    That is actually a shadow from another tree. I already photoshopped out a lot of stuff like two chairs and some random looking things on the ground. I fixed the one above and photoshopped out the shadow--Thanks for pointing that out. it does look a lot better now.

    Here is the original.

    Umm yes it is...Just because I used a flash doesn't mean its not long exposure. It is obviously long exposure if I'm getting the whole background in the picture.

    And again, I was looking for constructive criticism. Not a reply that does nothing in helping me become a better photographer. I want some help like "hey try using a higher aperture next time" or use a higher iso but a lower aperture. Things like that would be nice. Or even change your composition. But telling me that I'm looking for a pat on the back and to calm down, in no way helps me improve as a photographer.

    The subjects in all these shots are rather dull.

    Try higher ISO and shorter exposures ....
    Try getting away from the lights so you can pick up some stars...
    What about light painting with some LED's ....

    Mix it up a bit and try new things on your own.
