I agree with flyingkitty. Most of your photos look pretty good. Your pianist changed from T shirt to suit is an impressive editing performance.
Here is some picky stuff to pay attention to:
In the canoe photo, your horizon is not level. Rather than level the horizon, I might crop below the horizon line. I would do that because the sky is a strange colour anyway and except for showing a blurred sailboat, it is not adding anything.
Your Sea-do photo might be better if there was a bit more room in front of the boat.
Your goong foo girl (409710_3090928006922_1128700548_n.jpg) needs rotation of 4.11 degrees counter clockwise, your horizon is off. Rotated and cropped a little it looks better.
In 399537_3090931847018_1394831948_n.jpg, your subjects are exposed reasonably well but your background is over exposed. Burning it out completely or exposing it properly and lighting your subjects with a flash would look better. I appreciate you might not want to carry the extra weight of an external flash and the pop-up flash is not as powerful or controllable.
In 523378_3090942847293_1720935929_n.jpg, the house is leaning to the left.
In 481934_3090957247653_1600052682_n.jpg, the house is reclining! And, the left wall is leaning right while the right wall is leaning left. What editor are you using? Some editors have a lens correction function that will let you correct this sort of distortion.
I didn’t get through the Halloween dance photos but what I saw suggested the party was a blast! The photos are experimental. There are some cool effects. When doing an event, a mix of experimental shutter dragging with flash and straight up photos that make the people look nice will please most people.
In summary, good photos with a few minor glitches.
