What ever has got you off your rocker today, I love it. You've cut the bullshit (not that I ever thought you gave much..?) and give great advise. Its entirely unfortunate that NS leads ANYONE to that stage though.So much misinformation and ill advise.
1. "click for quality" doesn't apply when your pictures blow up to 3x any normal monitor can handle. Please resize all images to around 800px long edge.
2. Re read the text I am quoting.
3. Think about what you are shooting. Next time you go out shooting, frame your shot like normally, but then dont shoot it. Move your camera around, get higher, get lower, move to the sides. You'd be amazed at how many shots you miss by clicking the first frame that looks acceptable to you.
4. Think about what you are shooting. Only this time, consider what you are shooting, not how. Cute things make for cute pictures. If your audience is 12-16 year old girls, or the over 60 ladies. Taking pictures of cute things (ie flowers, dogs, sunsets) will lead to amazingly boring and amateurish looking shots.
Im not going to bother actually critiquing any of the shots, as a whole, they are as described above. The only one I might hold onto and post anywhere would be the second the last one, per a slightly less vignette.
"any one have a brazzers account i can use for like 20 mins?"
try not centering as much, (use Rule of Thirds more)

despite. seems to take the words out from beneath my fingertips in most of these threads.
When you shoot, think about getting the shot perfect out of the camera. Many photography heavy magazines will want to see a .dng file, which keeps a history of the photo-- when it was shot, settings, WHAT WAS DONE TO IT IN POST PRODUCTION, etc. It is no coincidence that many magazines will refuse to publish photos that have been altered in any way, including cropping, other than minor stuff like slight color correction or conversion to B&W if it was intended to be that way.
Before you try to make your photos "better" in photoshop, learn to make them good straight out of the camera.
