Just a comment: do you really expect to be praised for these pictures? Hmm... Any reasonable person with moderately developed sense, and judging by a number of replies, there are quite a few folks like that out there, would give you the real answer: these pictures are poor in both quality and composition. But don't worry, get better equipment, software, scanner , and learn to compose your photo, besides there are so many good professional examples on this site. You'll get there, no doubt. IMHO digital cameras spoil the beginning user and attribute to extra sloppiness; Besides, compared to film, which still provides a far superior photographic quality, colors have no depth.
So why do you ask in the subject, really?
However, you are not alone, the place, as I see it, is littered with extremely poor pics of all kinds. And the prolific guys never even bother to ask, it seems all that counts is to get your stuff in. Having a digital camera doesn't make one a photographer. Heck, there are some old photos with MUCH better quality than these with dates 2000-2001 (just looking at Aerial Applications Airline 1974 shot in another browser window for example, may be not the best example, but will do...), then again, some old photos get a horrible scan, at least there is an excuse there (old... is 1980s old? so many bad scans, it's not even funny)
I can only wish that a use of a decent photo editor be more commonploace: otherwise, it accounts for pictures that are "unbalanced" for no particular reason, with colors so distorted, a c/s is barely recognizable... oh well, good thing there are thumbnails and different ways to sort the results, helps a bit to avoid subpar quality and enjoy good pictures.
My thanks to so many for cool quality stuff , good luck !
