Re: Do I have potential?

The short answer is "yes." If you remove the first shot and the one of the dog, you would have an even better set. These two are not strong compositions, but the others are.

You show a nice appreciation for the frame. By that, I mean you have leading lines that respect the frame edges and direct the viewer, as well as compositions which are appropriate for the aspect ratio of the images.

Mainly, you're not doing anything terribly wrong. There is a tendency among novices to center everything (horizons, dogs, eyes, etc.), but you've avoided this.

I was a little surprised at the harsh contrast in the sea wall pic (I think the second shot), but then I saw it was an iPhone pic. Too bad you don't have that one with the E-M1.

Keep shooting and sharing.

EDIT: Try the shot of the trees as a square crop. I think you'll find it works well that way.
