please do comment so i can learn more,

Great practices, Ginchic. On the pink one, do you know where your mistakes are? From just a quick look, it seems you may have struggled with accurate counting and/or tension. But the cream one is very well done. The only suggestion I have there is that you block the piece to straighten out some of the bent picots. Congratulations! You are making good progress.

hmm, did u mis-count some rings in the middle row of the pink doily? looks like the ds are different. that could have caused the rings to look different and hence, the outer rows are distorted.

yes, that was one of the problems and another one was the tention like lynn said, i still have problems with the tension it seems that with thicker crochet cotton like size 20 or 30 it's easier than with size 70 or 80,
i'm surfing so long on the sites here in belgium for nice coloured tread like the pink one i used and varigated is even more difficult to find, do you now wher i can find the spools with the varigated ones?
thanks everyone for helping me

Practice pieces ......... vague notion of the practice of "pretend" pieces. Nahh!!!! I can't get there. These pieces are real tatting by a real, improving and mastering tatter (just like every other practicing tatter on the planet!). Art is always greater than the artist. Every piece of art is an attempt to capture what your heart can see. Others can sense when you have come very close, but they can't measure the distance between what you hoped for and what you achieved, only you can.

I would count the stitches on the 'flatter' chains. It looks like they're either tighter or have fewer knots. You might be able to coax it lay more even when you block it.
The white piece looks excellent. Nice, even tension. You're really improving.
