    I'd say try to use the rule of thirds a bit more.

    I like the second one with the stump, but I think if you had chosen a smaller apeture, then the greenery in the background would look a bit sharper (unless it's camera shake).

    The pussywillow thing is also nice.

    For the closeup shots, you've done well considering the lighting, but unfortunately it was a bit dull. Were they blowing in the wind too? There's a tiny hint of blur. If that's the case, use a faster shutter, wider apeture or a higher ISO :)

    Nice efforts :)

    Silent Pool??

    A bit overexposed. Check your histogram (assuming you can) after each shot and see if it is nice & in the middle, or it is too far to the right (bright) or left (dark). If so, fiddle with the exposure and try again. It results in more keepers.
