I would say your stuff is good, and you clearly have talent. But I wouldn't say it's quite EQ standard...yet.
As for taking critique (as opposed to criticism ) I learned long ago that I'd rather hear the truth as long as it's phrased in a constructive way (as in - if you change such and such it might look better, rather than - you suck, give up now! ) rather than false praise making me think my stuff is better than it really is. I'm no Wendy Pini, but I've learned a lot from what others have said about my own stuff...and if you ever want to be a professional you really need a thick skin!
