Try not to worry about whether or not your pictures are “good” or “bad”.  The most important thing is that you enjoy your photography and you are pleased with the results that you get.  If you’re looking to improve your photography, then asking for critique from other people can be helpful, but in the end it will always come down to your personal taste.

Totally agree with @KenVee. There is no good or bad in photography. 
If you really want to improve your photography than just shoot what you like. 

What helped me a lot is posting my best pictures on Instagram.
I realized that you are your best critic. So what I did is check my previously posted pictures and critique myself. You are the only person who knows how the scene was like. So by replaying the scene in my head, I could see what I could do better at that moment. So I applied these critiques in my next shootout. This really resulted in me improving my photography the way I wanted it to improve. 
 
Maybe this is something you can apply to your work as well!

By making critiques of other photos and probably more important- reading the critiques others make, its helping me critique my own work.

+1 but I think one has to be careful about whose critiques they pay attention to.  Unfortunately the internet provides a platform for people who think they’re the second coming of HCB but their work is not consistent with that viewpoint  Flickr street photography groups seem to be a great example of this.

 

Some of the most enlightening critiques I’ve seen have been from the Magnum workshop that Eric attended.  I learned a lot from hearing Constantine Manos’s critique of Karl Edwards’ work and DAH’s critique of Eric’s work.  Obviously these guys have the chops and a long history of great work to back up their comments.

 

Besides reading/listening to professional critiques, I’ve learned at ton from looking at photos on the Magnum web site.  Spend some time there and you will quickly realize how poor some of the work posted on Flickr, Instagram, etc. is in comparison.  And follow Eric’s advice and buy lots of photo books.  My recent Amazon order history contains an almost alarming number of books from Eric’s ’75’ list and they are all top notch.
