u 14 y.o so young ah? can become my son siah.
the photos not bad la.. for such young age.
ok give the kid a break, good start, work harder
If it's confidence you want, what others say does not matter so much. Belief in yourself is far more important.
your pic seemed very much like snapshots, there is not story, no emotions, no subjects...
however what you can learn out of this is the control of technical aspects of your cam, such as DOF...
i dont know why you have to specify that you are just 14.
read the basic rules of photography, from there you can capture your own imginations.
explore more. good try though.
Why need a rating??
Just keep shooting and practising....
You 14 your rating is 14 loh.
You 41 your rating will automatically be changed to 41.
When you reach 100... ...
I go by this grading system
5/5 - WOW - You are there!
4/5 - Good Picture with Good Technicality (Good camera use, PS.. whatever) - Less the WOW!
3/5 - Good Picture! Shoot more of this kind to get 4,5..(Composition, Feel, Mood, Subject)
2/5 - Need work on Composition, Interest, e.t.c.
1/5 - STOP Taking This kind of picture and reflect.....
I give 1.5/5 for all. :-}
You need work on interest. Really. No offence and PLEASE DON"T HANG UP YOUR CAMERA. A picture of our parents posing next to a trishaw properly done can earn a 2/5 at times, or a candid picture of a cat staring at you may be as interesting.
Need to read more and shoot more.I suggest you join a photography course. Lots of it available for Junior photographers. :-}

I cant see where your focus of attention is. Try to grab viewer's attention by placing the subject in the rule of 3rd.
You should see more photos and tag along others to learn on the field. Age does not matter. Here are 2 of my son's work. Both handheld. Since you have FB, I just link the photos from FB.
(shot when he was 7)
(shot when he was 8 last year)
TS, the animal shots not bad (based on the links, I dun use FB). In fact I like the action shots of the zebra.
The room shots are kind of boring, find something else interesting to shoot. I think u will do better.
Lastly, dun position your pictures on age and the general reactions might be better accepted. It sounds too much like an excuse. In this forum, quality of shots is independant of age.
Hope u take my comments positively.

Wow...14 years of age..it must be the year 1995..
Happy birthday in advance! u will be 15 tml!
At 14, to me, having an interest like this is good. Its a form of art and only you know how very much you want to learn it. I wished I was interested in photography as early at your age. I am sure now in secondary schools they offer photography as a CCA. Maybe or not your school has one. Go for it if it does!
For picture wise, you still got lots more to improve like others have said. However, its a good try taking in to consideration that you are 14. Don't be disheartened, keep working on it. Never back down by other people's critics. Take it constructively and improve.
Go for courses and improve if you really are certain that this will be your hobby or even your career when you grow up. You've got all the time you have as you are still young, don't rush things. Good luck!
TS your profile says you are 23.
well im not much older than you.. just fyi, but as they have said age doesnt matter its experience that counts (that comes with time and practice).
just a suggestion that you should just go through the forums, read up on guides and learn the techniques to good photography.
your images look slightly snap-shot like, with a lack of composition, to improve this read up on the rule of thirds...
theres always someone or some article to learn from
keep working hard at it
