    I like your images! Nice colors. I will give you my 2 cent crit. (just my thoughts)

    I wish the first shot showed a little more ocean--I feel like the composition is slightly unbalanced from the implied lines created by the shore.

    The second shot I wished it was panned just a skosh to the left. For some reason interrupting the land shape towards the bottom with the ocean is a bit unsettling. I wish the land was a solid uninterrupted chunk on the left and the ocean on the right.

    Third shot is kind of dull composition wise. And the vantage point really feels like a candid observer. I think something extraordinary needs to be going on in the frame for that perspective to work. Otherwise I think framing of landscape needs to generally feel omnipotent like the first two images are imo.

    Again, nice shots, I'm just giving you my unadulterated, nitpicky feedback. : )

    These are nice, well exposed images. Have to agree with the orientation as landscape would have been nicer on these

    There's a little clue there somewhere, Landscape/Portrait, now which is most suited to which kind of shot. H

    I don't remember how to check what settings pictures were taken on in EXIF, however there was a small period of time after my wife had used my camera that she changed the camera from P mode to Portrait without me noticing for a few shots.. anyway if thats what you guys are talking about theres the explanation, i only shoot on P really.

    aside from that, thanks for all the rest of the comments. the location is in Big Sur, CA its a beautiful spot and its where me and my wife spent out honeymoon (that and monterey, ca)

    #1 and #2 both work in vertical orientation, however - having less sky in the shot would have been nice on both. Try not to center the horizon in the frame unless there's a good reason to (like a symmetry shot or something).
