    try to frame shots that don't have the light bulb showing in them because it is very distracting..try burning them in photoshop..although i have had very little luck in ps...i like burning much better in the darkroom

    the river/stream photos are sweet. you may have opened the shutter too long. the car one isn't good at all. composition is good but the lights flairing takes away from its beauty.

    You seem to like long exposures. The car shot is the weakest. "White balance", yes you need to set your white point. I would try to crop out the blown out lights or positon myself so the lights are behind the tree or bridge. It's nice work and a good start.

    thats sweet...overexposed a bit though...see if you can use a higher f/stop or if you are at the end, get a polarizer...besides the slight overexposure..the picture is great

    i think you got the two main things down focus and exposure you just need to find better subjects man

    the first 3 you need to pay attention to the entire frame more, not just what you are focusing on .. a few things look un intentional... and photoshop is your friend USE it more

    at night you neeed to use the tungsten white balance. i tired to correct it with filters but some how your post proccessing killed a lot of the info and left severe contrast issues with levels and filters
