    Love the skateboarding one. Perfect timing to catch the board as you did.

    I think you need to show off your subject more. For example the first one I'm assuming is showing the cigarette pack on the ground, why not get closer, zoom in, fill the frame with your subject.

    I think you had good composition with the skateboarder but because he's set against a dark background you kinda loose him, maybe get lower so his backdrop is the sky, or move so those bushes don't eat him. :)

    Whew! For a moment I thought I was going to see snapshots of your family vacation.
    The skateboarder is great.
    I don't like the raindrops on the window as much, but it seems you have an eye for form.
    And it's not a hobby, more like an addiction.

    I like the skateboarder photo. It's nice to see one that's not shot as some crazy angle.

    Oddly enough I like the water droplet photo. The colors appear to me and it works with the dark patch in the bottom right.

    The skater photo I don't really like in B&W. It took me longer than it should to find the board, and his hand is cut off at the wrist. Also, the large patch of foliage isn't very appealing. Just my opinion though. Thanks for sharing.

    I like the 4th and 5th shot.

    The first one looks a tad desaturated... maybe the fifth as well. Have you done any post-processing on these? You may try to boost that a bit. Nice start overall though.

    Welcome to the forum/addiction :)
