Id say your professor wont care for the fan one, its boring, bland and it wasnt something you had to go out to shoot. The clock however appeals to me. Your third picture doesnt have something to draw my attention to it, and the fourth is a good exposure, however not very "artsy". Hope this helps.

All of your exposures are right on the money, so I am sure that will get you credit in that area. Im new to this site, so I hope my strict critiquing is helpful and not offending anyone. The site I frequent www.iphotoforum.com have some very very tough reviewers, and I can definatly tell improvement from their advice, so unless it causes a problem I will contenue that tradition over here.

Why not? :) As long your critic comes with ways to improve, then I think it is beneficial to the photographer.

Better than those "It sucks. Period." posts...

There have been many photographers who are well known for "abstractions", rather than "extractions".

"Extractions" is merely taking small bits of something. Photographing a small portion of something bigger.

In contrast, "abstractions" is making an "abstract" of something that is often familiar. In this case, there is a mystery. One is led to look and think. Not everything had been said.

Your images are mere "extractions" - the clock, the fan and Yoda. There is no story.

There is one that might be an abstraction in #3. (I think this is an elephant with its trunk raised). But this is so fuzzy that few would be interested to take a second look.
