    This is just short and to the point, so don't get offended.

    1-4) Kind of boring. Nothing really of interest and you have a lot of dark areas in these. And the buoys in the water don't help on the landscapes for me.

    5) Out of Focus

    6) underexposed

    7) better

    8) underexposed to me also. Maybe if you had a longer shutter speed to show more of the log?

    Again...not trying to be rude, just to the point.

    i agree with kyuss,

    i believe a polarizer would have helped bring out the sky in the first few shots.
    also shooting earlier in the day with the early sun?

    good composition though

    polarizer smolarizer! do you not see how blue the sky is in the first shot?!?!?!?! the second one could be just as blue with some processing maybe. . . and a polarizer may not have worked on that sky, its a blue sky, there isn't always something to bring out.



    ----i think the first shot is the best - - - - -

    Some of the landscape ones are nice... the color is good and so are the reflections. Maybe if you cloned out the buoys on the two with them it would help quite a bit. 5 is out of focus as already mentioned. I really can't tell what number eight is, if you used a longer shutter speed it would be less underexposed.

    Dunno guys, but I like all of these photos. Beautiful landscape nicely captured. Wish I was there, too - feeling.

    ahhh "Big Blue" ... but I tend to agree with everybody else ... rather blah and many OOF. Try focusing on something in the foreground for perspective or framing the landscape with tree branches are but two examples to bring some wow factor into the frame.

    Yeah, I know your not trying to be rude, I would rather have an honest opinion! So thanks for that, I will be sure to fix these problems and try again next camping trip.

    And for everyone else, thanks for all the comments and tips!
