Your subject matter is interesting, but I feel that's where it ends.

Firstly, I don't think text really has a place in a photograph unless it's being used as some sort of graphic, as in a website or advertisement. If you have to use it, the photograph probably isn't strong enough to stand on its own. And I think the first one probably would stand on its own, so why text?

Second - Jesus I didn't expect to see actual blood here; maybe a warning or putting it under a link might've been more appropriate! ^^; It's a decent shot but I feel it might have been better without that awkward tilt - also, though this can't be helped now, if the subject had been doing something more interesting with that back foot. Perhaps bending the knee and resting one foot behind the other? The way the legs are seems to kind of break up some kind of flow for me.

The hamster is cute but it seems like more of a basic snapshot to me. The color processing kind of just makes it look like a cutesy MySpace photo (I know that sounds harsh but I'm not trying to be mean)!

Watch your tilt, definitely. There are times when a tilt that is somewhat more severe can work, but yours just comes across as not holding the camera straight. I'd advise you to avoid tilting at all until you have a grasp of what works and what doesn't.

Sorry for the essay on cruelty here; hope I didn't offend you too much.

After a few years of owning a dslr now, i have found that i enjoy landscape photography more than anything!
so i bought a wide angle lens, this is the first time i got to try it out.
it's okay, i'm happy with it, i couldn't afford anything better.
it's a sigma 10-20mm f/4-f/5.6 or something along those lines
here are a few quick shots i took earlier.

The parts of the image which you have no control over (the colors and patterns) are pleasant. However, this is not enough to carry the concept.

There is no strength in your composition, and that's what bothers me the most. There's nowhere for my eye to go, no path, and therefore no interesting points in the image. There's no focal point whatsoever.

The idea is really good, but a tripod might be a good investment. I love the colour in the second one!

These would be amazingly juicy if you shot them without a flash in front of a bright window. You should try it! I'd like to see the results.
