I don't go to a School that is willing to be honest when they critique, so i was hoping i could get some from everyone here. This reel focuses on my progress as a DP.

also, there are a lot of those quick cuts showing just a frame or two like 4 or 5 shots all at once...not only is it kind of annoying, but it serves no purpose. If they're worth showing, then show them, don't get fancy with the edit.

I agree with Jonathan. I'd focus more on some of the film stuff if you've got it as opposed to the stuff at the end.
There is a shot i really dislike in the "western," where the men burst into the room. I don't think the mixed color temperatures really help and it looks too "lit" to be period--ish, ya know? I am assuming that you're going period from costuming FWIW.
But hey, still much better than my first reel (which was total poop!) Keep refining it down and you'll get it where it ought be.
