Let me know what ya'll think, I just went with what seemed natural to me and adjusted accordingly. Thanks in advance for the Feedback!

Also not sure why some look grainy on here, they don't look grainy uploaded elsewhere, I can link them in if you want a better look.

Everything definitely looks grainy here, I think a link would be a good idea.

Besides that, many of the shots look too dark on my monitor, like so dark that half the picture is black. 3 and 7 in particular suffer, but they are all pretty dark.

Yeah it was getting late, and cloudy, so they didn't have the best lighting.

The brightness is fine on my screen, but then again mine turns night into day. These shots are pretty nice, but a bit grainy, especially noticeable in 5. IMO it doesn't take much away from these, but I recommend using a tripod so you can take long exposures at ISO 100 or below.

All were shot on a tripod, try checking the link, no grainyness in there.

1,2,3,4, 7 aren't squared off. You need to line up and square off your images where applicable when shooting. -Image content- and correctly squared off shots are just as or more important than lack of cam shake.

Just checked out the link. They're looking much better in there, but the two indoor shots are still quite grainy, particularly LoneChair. I see that they're shot at ISO 800. Remember, with a tripod, you can have as slow of a shutter speed as you need, so using an ISO higher than 100 really isn't necessary.

Depends on the ambient light. The longer the exposure, the more that can go wrong including floor vibrations and wind.
Up to ISO 400 produces good results. Even at 800 with noise reductions images are good. I'm talking Canon pro cams circa 2008, newer cams have better low light capabilities.

Either use the cam's timer or a shutter release when using a tripod to avoid release shake. I prefer not to use a tripod down to 1/60 of second, sometimes lower. Tripods are a poor substitute for proper shooting form and technique. Learn how to free shoot, it takes time, a steady hand and practice, but is worth the trouble.
Remember to turn off image stabilization if the lense has it when shooting with a tripod.
