So I know it's been said but that first picture is AMAZING! That is what I wanted my senior pictures to look like, they came out pretty well, but more happy... anyway I love them your amazing!

He wraps Himself in Light, and darkness tries to hide and trembles at His voice... How great is our God!

Ditto what everyone else has said!  Smiley

I hit this rocks - I think you are really talented in capturing the atmosphere, mood and emotion. They are very empathetic and intuitive pictures, you've really managed to capture feeling, which is hard to do.

You're sure to get a top grade with work like that - are you planning a career in photography/photographic art, if so what field do you hope to go in to?

Look forward to telling people we knew you before you were famous!  Grin

Fellow photographer here- went to college for it & have been doing it for about 15 years now. Specializing in Creative Portraiture.
First two images are outstanding. The first one being my favorite. Id suggest you submit it to a magazine for publication. :-)
The tonality in the majority of the images are right on. The blacks are black and the white are white & there is detail in the shadow & in the highlights- and a great range of greys. They really "pop" The first image- the eyes pull you right in. Beautiful.
How does the teacher grade your prints?
When I was in college we had a critique for each project where we had to stand in front of the class and explain our piece- then the class had a chance for input and they critiqued our work-(good and bad aspects) along with the instructor.Our grade was based not only on the teachers opinions but the opinions of our peers on our work. This was a great chance for growth and to be able to hear the honest opinions of your peers can help you to take your work to the next level. Plus it was cool- if you got an "A" you knew you really earned it.
We also had 3 juried pieces, where not only did we have the class critique our work- but we had to present it in our auditorium, in front of the whole visual comminications dept(graphic design, mixed media, photography) and present our work to a panel of professionals and a department chair of the vis.comm dept while they critiqued our work in front of the whole gang of people with you standing there. Imagine American Idol standing in front of Simon,Paula and Randy after a performance. lol
Those were scary but once again a great chance for growth, because they are brutally honest.
Are you a member of a local camera club or photography club? If not Id really recommend joining. If your school doesn't have critiques and juries- the clubs usually do. Plus a great way to learn photography is also to surround oneself with those outside of school setting, who also love and know the craft and have been at it for years.
  Are you in for a degree in photography or just taking a few classes? If you are in for a degree/certificate, then where are you at in the program?
Were these shot digitally or with a manual? Have they been manipulated in Photoshop? How were they lit? What grades did you get on them? What was everyones favorite? I'm guessing the first. Cheesy What is your favorite & why?
If you want I can offer a couple other comments on some of them if you IM me.

Once again great job & keep up the good work!

Great work! Did you work with a make up artist? 

If you lived in the US I'd hire to take "family" photos!  I can't stand the typical family photos with everyone in jeans and white shirts or some such uniform!  Your photos are the type of photos I want in my house I just want to be in them!  Smiley
