    they showed up twice.....but the pictures seem like pictures i guess, decent composition in the first one, the colors are faded and its over exposed, just need to work on your basics.

    okay, yes after looking at some of the beautiful pictures people put on here, it really humbles my photography but i also want anyone to comment on the subject material/creativity.

    In the first one, the location isn't bad, but the water is very over exposed and blown out.

    With two mostly I am just unsure of what I am supposed to be looking at, as it is very busy. It is also slightly blurry.

    The third looks like a nice location as well, but would be better if taken outside the car - on a day with better lighting.

    Honestly, I think you need work on composition. The photos don't really speak to me. They don't tell a story.

    I like the tree and vines one, but I recommend doing a sharpening pass on it. It will really make it pop. In photoshop do smart sharpen... 75%, 1.2 pixels probably.

    The one with the bottle in the woods near the water is interesting. I think the bottle itself might have been intriguing but it is kind of lost. Might be better to get it further forward in the scene, and perhaps take the picture from down lower. (I agree with the other technical comments on the photo that need a bit of work, but figured I would comment on the composition as well)

    Pictures from inside a car tend to not do it in most cases. Certain situations can work well, but it has to be special.

    Keep at it. Shows some promise.
