    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    Look for images to shoot that will give interest to the viewer.
    Also study the Rule of Thirds....

    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Bridge: Generally good composition, tho I would have moved right to include more bridge and less dead space on the left, also mid day light is usually the least attractive. Try the scene in morning or evening with nice rich light. Also always make sure your horizons are dead level.
    Bottle: Sorry, nothing interesting here. If you want a picture of the bottle, get rid of everything else. For example the light fixture at the top is very distracting.
    Sea scape: Level the horizon and keep it out of the center unless there is some clear relationship between above and below, as with reflections. It is not clear what your subject is. The picnic table should be all in or all out. The rest of the foreground is rather drab, and the items along the horizon line are too small to see.
    Second sea scape: Horizon appears level but get it out of the center. I think the ship/sun has potential: try cropping that into a simple composition, but dont center it.
    Last one: Awkward composition: seems cut in half, but potentially very interesting subject. The rusty metal and other textures could be very rich in detail, pattern and color.
    I hope this helps....JSD
