    rather small so makes it hard to critique. But here goes :

    1. nothing really noteworthy. silhouetted palm branch.
    2. nice, but again, too small. would like to see some detail.
    3. no real subject to catch my eye.
    4. could be interesting were it bigger and showed detail.
    5. would be nice were the palm tree completely in shot and whatever that is on the right (black silhouette) were not there. again, would like to see it bigger.
    6. probably my fave of your set.
    7-9. not big enough to catch my eye. could be nice with great detail.
    10. would be nice without dead tree on the bottom.
    11-13. these would be nice were they bigger (see a pattern here ;))

    You have some strong compositions here and your exposure is very good as well.

    A couple suggestions I have would be,
    -mind your edges, dont just look at the subject, look at everything in the frame and decide if its helping the subject or distracting from it. (ill use the bottom picture as my example, the tree in the top left and also in the bottom left pull your eye away from the subject.

    -try crouching down low or getting a higher vantage point rather then just shooting from standing position (#8 for example)

    -pay attention to the position of the horizon and try to make it divide the frame in thirds whenever possible.

    Nice work Keep it up!
    Looks like a beautiful holiday!

    While these are all fairy nicely composed the one with the most interest to me from a photographic standpoint is the last.

    I assume that your camera puts out images in the 3:4 format but you need to be aware that most small prints are made in either 2:3 format and larger prints in 4:5 so take that into account when composing.

    First thing that occurs to me is that the horizontal is off by about a degree and would be pretty noticeable in a print of any size.

    Note that there is a good amount of useless space at the top and sides that can be cropped and make the composition much tighter
    and sized to print better.
