    Can I have a critique please?

    I have loved shooting film ever sense my high school photo class stared. This was around January I believe so I am quite new to photography and I would like some advise from others. I do not know where to post this so I apologize if I posted it in the wrong place. Here are my photos, thanks!

    Edit: Photo groups:

    Old cars: 1, 2, 6, 7.

    Old buildings: 8, 10, 11, 12.

    Clouds: 3, 9, 15.

    Neon lights: 4, 5.

    PPIHC race end: 13, 14.

    Hope this helps.

    And please be as brutally honest as you can.

    frankly a good critique would involve knowing what you want to achieve.

    Not really a coherent set, but I see some good narrative in some of your images; a weegee-style of immediacy;
    the second image showing people with outstretched hands to the approaching car stands apart.

    Some famous photographer once said: Your first 10,000 images are your worst.

    Keep practicing. There are some technical issues, perhaps with your shutter, and light leaks.

    A lot of them were nice pictures but outside of any context lacked an impact. I thought some exceptions were the photo of the cloud texture and the one with the white race car and people stretching their hands out. I liked those.

    I realize now that I should had grouped them up. I will edit my post saying which ones belong in which group.

    How do you recommend I make my photos more meaningful? Make them into groups? If so I now realize I should have done that and will be sure to do it next time.

    Yes, those photos were shot with my AE-1. I just sent it to Garry's Camera Repair so it should not be a problem in the future.

    As previously stated, we need to know the context and purpose of these images. What are you trying to express?

    For the ones of the old cars and buildings I want to express loneliness. Then with the neon lights and clouds I want to express uncertainty. I would also like to know how to show other emotions so I can do so if the picture comes along.
