Default Amateur photographer - critiques?

Hi guys,

I'm an amateur photographer who's just into photography for fun. Just thought I'd post some of my photos, tell me what you think and how I can improve?

I really like the blue flower. A bit sharper focus could improve the pics. The saturation of the sheep pic looks a bit off.

Over all nice pics!

I think the light is a bit harsh on the front flowers because you're losing the pretty blue colors that the back ones have.

I like the different angles of the stones, but it lacks 'what the picture is about' to me.

I like this one - just because it has sheep in it. But the background throws me off. It's too much going on. I would use a smaller f/stop so just the sheep are in focus.

This is a good shot, but the lack of focus isn't working for the flower. I would use a smaller f/stop and try to get more of the flower - not the dead background/roots.

This is...just a really cool shot!

I like this shot, but I feel like her chest is the main focus of the image, not her head.

Thanks for all your feedback and advice, guys! I'll be sure to keep it all in mind for the future (and get more pictures of the doggy, Jess )
