Since you asked what I think, here it goes. Linework looks clean, IE. consistent, no blowouts from what I can see... etc. As for the shading, watch the lines, get your ink all the way up to it so you have no light spots. If there are good references to use for things like cherry blossoms and such, use them so all the sides of the flowers are even. Having been brought up with a Japanese sensei, that is a big thing. For the smoke and such, don't use filler so much, or study other peoples and learn from what they have done. Try and make every piece that you do the best that you have have ever done, and you will be good. Not trying to be ass, just saying what I am seeing.
