    Some unasked for advice in regards to getting feedback: post no more than about 3 images, but more importantly, post images together that belong together. You're more likely to get feedback if you put up a post with people pictures and another post with landscape pictures.

    That being said:

    The saturation's a bit high in #1, but it's a pleasing image in many regards. It looks very CGI-ish but not in a bad way.

    #2 suffers from being taken at the exact wrong times of day, the greens are washed out by the harsh light. The whole image feels tilted to the right.

    #3 again the saturation is a bit much and I think this might actually benefit from having the water portions cropped out. The downside of that means the bridge would be framed center, which would probably not work compositionally in this case.

    #4 is a cute photo and the reflection is fun, the TV and the bright orange thing don't help it. #4 and #5 also have some pretty strong vignetting. It works in #5 (more on that) but has no place in #4, really.

    #5 nice use of symmetry and patterns and shows where a centered composition can work. The vignette works here but I think it's a bit overdone. The pole growing out of the subject's head is a sad consequence of the location. The subject is also pretty grainy... was this pushed with the 'fill' sliders in LR? It really has that look. The B&W conversion is pretty typical for what Lightroom can do, but I do find it interesting how the foreground looks like it was comp'd in from a different image (I know it wasn't) but the background looks like an old black and white photo, and the foreground bars look like it's from a new one. Interesting juxtaposition, and would be grand if you could figure out how to do that reliably.

    I'll echo rufus' comments. If you want quality C&C, post one, maybe two images, and then try to ask specific questions ("Did I get the composition right? Is my exposure off?"). I think rufus pretty much covered it.
