Just to clarify, Andrea, Dave isn't a "sir", he's a grumpy old git (especially when he doesn't get his cheesecake on time)!
I am reluctantly forced to agree with him on this point however. Your shots are plenty good enough! Your 'church person' shot is the kind of image I invariably walk straight past (dammit!).
The only think to bear in mind for the galleries is that digital manipulation is a no-no(other than quick levels tweaks and sharpening in order to overcome scanning problems). Neg scans are fine though.
I'm glad to see you got something worthwhile out of the day (and these are definitely worthwhile!).
All the best,
