    1. great focus and really nice colours

    2. Over saturated and looks a little surreal on the plant but i like the leaves

    3. never saw this one before, really nice and creative love the bubble in the glass

    4. good use of lighting although the glasses are a little too dark

    The kind of calibre of those pictures usually appear in photography magazines. I remember reading a lot of them from D60s. Amazing.

    1) could move the subject more of center, use the rule of thirds [link]
    2)agin with the thirds and you croped it a little too close to the top
    3) interesting, white balance seems to be off and the glass is crooked
    4)just a little too dark

    i really like the idea of the third picture, but would redo it where the glass isn't slanted

    1. Looks good----close your F stop to increase you depth of field. (part of the leaf is not focused)
    2. I love over saturation. I don know why but i do. I would crop tighter on the flowers them selves. but I love the color.
    3. Looks... well.. Idk. Its art. who knows. LoL Only thing I would do is work on the alignment. vertical lines go straight up and down. All lines are parallel to the border.
    4. I love this type of shot. Close crop low key face shots. Only thing i would do is get a little wider shot getting the whole face. With the D60 I would line up the left focusing meter to be the main focusing meter and open the lens (f/stop) all the way.
    You seem to have a good eye for art and a good eye to capture the emotion of art is more important that your ability to push a button.
