    The first three could really use some cropping. In the first one, the subject is so small, and there's so much negative space, it's difficult to see what you're supposed to be looking at. In the next two, half the frame is sky and the flower is cut off from the bottom. I think it would have looked better with more flower and less sky. As they are, you could stand to lose about 80% of sky in both of them. All of your photos suffer from having the subject basically centered in the frame. The flowers are a bit offset, but not enough in my opinion.

    Sorry about being so brutal. A common mistake is not filling the frame with your subject or something that adds to the shot. Negative space is great for moving subjects, but in cases like these, it's better to crop down to only things that add to the shot. In a shot where 75% of the frame is sky, the sky isn't adding anything to the shot.

    The thing that sticks out to me the most is that you have a lot of dust on your sensor.

    Cleaning sensors by Thom Hogan

    First entry on Google, searching "cleaning the nikon d1 sensor".

    Anytime you need to know something, search the internet, that's what it's there for.

    Holy cow, that is a dirty sensor! You'd be smart to have that thing cleaned ASAP. No sense in trying to take good photos with specs all over them.
