    Nice series. I like how you composed that first one, looking down the breakwall like that and getting the row of palms and the rows of umbrellas/chairs parallel.

    I know kit lenses often get bashed, but don't be under the misconception that a kit lens can't take a good shot. Simply throwing better quality glass on your camera won't make much of a difference unless you have a good knowledge of how to get your exposure right. The shots you have here aren't bad, but they have the typical "straight off the camera" look which lacks saturation, contrast and just look bland/washed out. A simple contrast boost would make these photos pop much more and is a very easy adjustment to make regardless of your editing program. You can probably even do it in camera with the retouching option.

    Another bit of advice you will find out: shoot when the sun is lower so your lighting is softer. Shooting mid-day gives you harsh shadows and washed colors, both of which can make a photo look worse than if taken during the evening or early morning.
