Not much of a judge but I like it, 8/10. Ofcourse Im a super new photo person.

Here is a shot my girlfriend took with the 18-55 xsi. I just resized it since I dont know squat about photo editing yet.

6/10
I believe she used the autofocus on this? Which in, in my guess why the focus is off. The obvious object that she wanted to show, isn't in focus, instead the cup is. I'm not sure if you can manually adjust the focus after AF has kicked in like I can do with AF-S lenses from Nikon, but tell her to rock the MF ring
Otherwise, in the compositional aspect, it seems a bit "dull", I mean, we see this aspect of moths every day. Next time she sees a moth, or you see one, maybe try to get underneath it, or ahead of it to get a more dynamic view.
Also, crank open the aperature to get smaller DOF, would help to blur out the background bucket/cup, thinger.

6/10 - The top third of the picture is marring the shot: too dark and cloudy, might have been a better sky if taken 30 minutes or so earlier. Also, too much sky for my taste in the shot (a la rule of thirds) and the building is so far down that it's marginalized. I think that if the shot were cropped or re-framed to about three times the height of the building that it would be better. Also, it might be my imagination but I think see some dust motes from your sensor at the top.

9/10
The focus, depth of field, and colours all are brilliant. But...I don't know what is going on at the bottom edge of the flower's petals, and whatever that is, it is ripping my attention away from the bee while I try to understand what is going on there.

Also: Thanks for the suggestions, and yes, there is an unhealthy amount of dust on the sensor of my camera. I need to go back through some of my earlier shots and clean that up.

8/10 - I like the B&W usage and the tools on the floor give a nice context. B&W is all about tones so I say MOAR CONTRAST!

I feel like the picture is a bit off centered (might just be my eyes.) I like how the trees reflect in the water though. The clouds look cool up top but the muck in the river right at the bottom doesn't look right to me.

This was one of the first shots I took when I got my 105mm Macro.
