Since your photos don't have any exif, I cannot give you any feedback. Now, they are clearly UNDEREXPOSED... I can barely see anything on them. I would highly recommend to practice before you start watermarking your photos for the sake of your reputation.

What camera are you using? Settings? Lens?... etc etc

We need more info so we can further assist you :D

Wayyyy too dark. If they look good on your monitor, it's set too bright.

Underexposed. Lacking ambient lighting. Get a flash and bounce that sucker off the ceiling! A cheap YN465 works wonders!!!

What are you saying .... do these look alright on your laptop, if so then how do other peoples pictures look on the same laptop.

How do they look on the rear LCD screen of the camera before you download them to the PC.

We need more detailed information before we can understand your problem.

These images have nothing to do with HD screens on laptops or image editing. The images are underexposed due to improper lighting at the time the shutter release button was pressed. This may be due to either equipment or user error. An example of equipment error would be a faulty flash unit. An example of user error would be improper settings on your camera or with your lighting equipment.

The LCD screen on the back of your 60D should have told you these images were underexposed when you took them.

Now, suppose you needed to fix these, it may be possible to extract some detail from these images, but that process may add noise and make the image appear more grainy, especially in the shadows (which is the majority of the image). If you took them in RAW format, you may be able to recover more detail with less noise than if they were originally saved as JPG format.

The most obvious is that the image would be dark. Another way is to use the histogram - that's the image that looks like a graph. Read the owner's manual to learn to use these tools. However, even before you took the image, the meter on your camera should have told you that the image was too dark. Do you know what mode you were shooting in? P, Av, Tv, M, etc?

I don't think you suck. Photo # 2 is nicely composed and captures a very interesting image. It's easy to learn the technical aspect of photography. It's much more difficult to learn the artisitc side. I think you understand the artistic side from your compositions and subjects' faces, you just need help with the technical side.

+1 - Photos are WAY to underexposed. I would re-shoot these and avoid trying to rescue them with editing.

All the shots in your Flickr are under exposed, you need to learn about "the Triangle".
