    I like #5 but what is that purple thing in the middle?

    #8 is nice also, but perhaps could've been better without the stuff in the foreground.

    I'm no photographer, but that's how I see it.

    keep up the good work.

    I just try to visualize what my photo will look like when its printed or on a screen. I can often find myself adjusting the shot on my camera because im thinking ahead of what it will look like.
    Evenutally after alot of practice you just have sort of an eye for what you think looks good.
    I took 2 semesters of a photography class in highschool so i guess that helps aswell. The best advice i can give you is to get out to new spot, try to shoot new subjects, and keep practiceing.
