Ok, I will bite.

Who is going to buy your art?

Most pros make a living doing portraiture, seniors photos, engagement photos, wedding photos. You haven't shown a picture in that page that would indicate you have the chops for that, and trust me, it is harder than it looks.

You do have some chops in environmental shots, but people tend not to spend big bucks on environmental stuff. The exception is touristy towns.

For every Ansel Adams, there are tens of thousands of wannabes. I know, I am one. I have had some works in a gallery, none of them sold. My uncle, who is a genius with photoshop and does artistic work with photos as a starting point is also going to a gallery, but I don't expect either of us will be rich any time soon.
