#1 is badly in need of a crop to get rid of that upper 1/4 of the picture.
The #2 shot is washed out - either overexposed or just rendered too bright here.
#3 has no one doing anything.
#4 has the two ladies doing slapstick - but why the screen?
Perhaps you could take the two ladies to the playground and get something combining their talent with the otherwise static scene?
#5 is surely a throw-away.
I'm aware that number 2 is a little bright (exposure was correct, it was just the sunny sky), but it's emulating how it looked in person..it's just the sky and trees that are a little washed out.
For number 4, the screen is there because they were simply behind it. It was a candid, unplanned shot while they were looking outside from in there and I told them to pose really quickly. Nothing wrong with that.
For the playground shot, I'm aware nothing is going on there, but that's not the point. There's plenty of excellent photos out there with no one in them and nothing going on..it's just a nostalgic shot of a playground.
And how is number 5 of the beautiful sky a throwaway? It was taken correctly and displays great colors after a rainstorm..since when is a photo of a sky like that throwaway?
Jeez I appreciate the criticism whether it's called for or not, but do we have to use the sarcasm eye-roll smiley too?

I think the second page is the strongest, but I also like the castle from one of the next pages.
