    ...so cliche. kind of disappointing. :\
    the last one is the most interesting to me.
    i like the symmetry of the pool in #2.

    keep shooting, these all look like so many postcards I've seen before.

    stayed in pompano beach, but most the pics were from ft lauderdale or miami.
    yea you could say they're all pretty cliche, but then again arent most landscape shots, i live in NY so just the change in scenery was pretty cool to me, but i can see how they can seem pretty ehh if you lived there.

    Love the last one although i wish it was more symetrical. All of your shots are exposed nicely. These are far better than just "vacation" snapshots :)

    Translation: "Keep shooting, these look like they have commercial value".

    For me, that doesn't make sense as criticism. I think most people here are trying to achieve commercial value in their shots.

    Makes alot of sense, she's saying he's good, thats criticism. They do have commercial value I think, I personally love the skyscraper photos from across the water look very well exposed. For the others, good shots too.

    I think they are fine images. You should be happy with them. They are clean, well exposed.

    The one thing, along the the cliche line, is that I find they are straight on shots. None of them (save the last) is from an interesting angle, or tilted, or...different. Might just be a style difference issue, but them are my crits.

    Yes exactly. That's how I feel.

    "aren't all landscape photos.."
    No, of course a landscape isn't going to change everytime you take a picture of it, but if you take it in a way that makes it your own, it won't be so cliche.

    Living in Miami perhaps adds some weight to why it just makes me feel :er: when I see these photos but I feel like they could have been captured in other ways to make them more refreshing. They're not snapshots either, don't get me wrong. Yeeeesh.

    The translations were way off. :lmao::thumbup:

    thanks everyone for all the input, yea i definitly know what you mean sbuxo, i actually perfer comments like yours rather than nice photo or anything like that because it gives me a different view point of my own which helps me see what i need to do better/differently.

    Ok then tell me what you've learned from her comment. How can you make these photos better?

    It's funny how the images were not upto per yet she said it looks like postcard images. Probably didn't think, that'd actually be a good thing. These photos are great and yes they look like postcard images. Why is that great? Because there's more chance of you now selling these photos and making money out of them.

    Cliche shot ARE cliches because everyone wants them! For people not living in the area, and seeing these postcard images every day, these would be pretty nice shots! Which is not to say you shouldn't experiment with other ways of doing it too!

    Sorry, but #8 doesn't do anything for me. Love all the rest of them.
