small wonder

small wonderHard to jusdge detail if you upload such small crops. 1000x1000 is already very small but you didn't use them
the best detail is in no 2. There is oodles of detail in the bee and part of the flower is also sharp.
the DOF in no 1 is almost not here, I reckon the fur could be a tad sharper.
In no 3 it seems you focussed on the petal, not the ant. Well I would have gone for the ant.

I just saw that you used a 60mm. Now for insects that is very difficult to get so close without standing in your own way. To get a 1:1 you have to be at about 12 cm.. not ideal so you are facing a really difficult job.
Try perhaps a 90mm or 105 or even your tele with an extension. I can hear you say well you got all that I haven't. Since I miss my 180mm I had to come uo with all sorts of ideas how to get my insects any which way. So far the best workaround was the tle for butterflies and the 90 with extension for everything else.

Starling

Starlingvery cute... you get my vote for sure.
but: please crop half of what is on the LHS of the starling. Meaning leave the space where he is looking, not on his back.
Also the pic lost somewhat detail in conversion. Try to do it on your own device, I saved a setting in LR3 called epz that converts everything to 1000x pixels with 'sharpen for screen' and a folder epz-up for output. So now I can prepare all my uploads accident free.

Portchester Castle

Portchester CastleIn principle, it is very nice.
Two ideas from someone who is not an expert at architecture.
... The branch touching the high tree in the background doesn't help.. It pulls the together instead of spacing them apart.
... The trunk is a bit too close , so there is no space on the left. One step further back might have been better but maybe you were hiding a yellow bin or a lady in a red coat.

Torc waterfall

Torc waterfalla very good composition which could be easily improved: either try mono to emphasize the graphic waterfall or use a proper white-point. I miss a true white and a bit of detail in this one. maybe it just the compression.

Fading Away

Fading Awayan appealing winter image. I lke the parkle in the drop and the new bud pointing toward the old leaf.
I might have been tempted to crop the blurry bits on the right, as in leave only the LH side of the 'T'

Icelandic RainbowA stunning ky, lovely yellow grass and impressive hills.

I would have been tmpted to remove or darken the one white fencepost, though, it is a bit distractiing
