ChargeProbably better to motion blur the sky as well as the land is blurred?

MIXED EMOTIONSIt is well taken, good angle, good processing, good make-up.
However, as a photo for emotion/mixed emotion, I think her face has no expression nor emotion at all. That is why it isn't working for me.
Hth, Phil.

SamoyedCan't really comment about settings as it really depends on the condition and what you are after and what breed it is. But in general, they looks pretty ok.
I normally use shutter speed from 1/400 -1/1000 sec, trying to get iso as low as I could, f4-f8. I have never feel the need of using 1/2000 etc, as a bit of motion blur would be better.
Shutter speed is not be all and end all. Also, missing shots isn't really entirely because of shutter speed, it could be focusing error, speed of focusing etc etc.

On and on.....

On and on.....I would actually crop a bit of the top off, Johnny, till the below the horizontal part.
I would also try cloning out the black steel (?) thats growing off the top of the girl's (on the RHS) head.

The attack

The attackI like the viewpoint, but it lacks something to tell a story.
Maybe if he is holding a baseball bat or something, it will make the imagination wilder and works better.
Also, I would prefer to see a bit more separation of his top half from the background with backlighting.

Autumn in Winter

Autumn in WinterQuite like it, but would probably do a bit of gardening before taking the shot.

JackWell, it wasn't overexposed, so thats ok.
I think you have sort of focused on the chest, rather than the eyes, as the chest appears sharper. And the westie is a bit too low in the frame as well.
1/4000 is a bit overkill for a westie running to be honest. 1/1000 sec would be more than enough. So, you should be able to get the ISO a bit lower and the aperture to F5.6 or so.
As said by Natalie (if your camera has it), use focus tracking, and use the centre AF point, and keep tracking and keep the centre focus point around the eyes area.

nail clippers

nail clippersI like your idea, but the execution is less desirable.
Rather than a straight shot, try to play with it a little bit. For example, using light a bit more creatively for highlight and shadow, different arrangements, etc etc.

Brograve Mill B&W

Brograve Mill B&WSeriously though, Lobster, If you can get some details back on the swan, and go gently on the sharpening, then you might keep it.
Buddy List Macro Challenge 2009Hmmm.... I haven't done this, so don't mind me:

I failed to see where is in focus, definitely not on the top of the droplet.

Lighting is a bit everywhere which needs to be controlled more evenly and precisely.

Boulders and Cliffs

Boulders and CliffsLooks a bit heavy on the RHS.
And a bit soft too

model1Like the eyes detail, the background, angle, and colors.
But few points:
Would like to see a bit more details of the hair.
The tag is a bit distracting.
Either includes the hands or not.

A809 Horse

A809 HorseLike this one a lot, I only wish there is slightly more space on the left.

What Happened???

What Happened???I agree with Doug as all I see is just a rather noisy shot. Nothing weird really, even though I am pretty surprised how noisy it is at ISO100. But then long exposure do tends to increase the noise.
Don't know really.

* I supposed Doug meant long exposure noise reduction on 20D.

Born to be Wild

Born to be WildI think it could be improved by trying to align the barbwire so that they connect from one to the next, to create an illusion of one photo cuts into three.

Sam an Ella

Sam an EllaI think the egg on the front works best, compared to the 2 on the bg, maybe because of the hair, they just look cut-out because of that.
How about turn the egg-cup on its side on the bg and only 1 egg on the front?

SerenIt seems to me the focus is on the grasses in front of the cat, rather than the cat eyes, which doesn't help in this photo.
I would tend to use bigger aperture to put more emphasis on the cat / cat's eyes. I would clone out the shadow and the white thingy on the top right as well.
