    Hey Everyone!

    1. I think I'd like it better with a tighter crop. If you had gotten lower and gotten the ledge out of the frame, it'd make for a pretty cool effect. Personally though, I think this is the best of the bunch.

    2. Maybe try cropping off either the left or the right. You want to try to keep the main focal points of your shot away from the middle. Do a search for Rule of Thirds if you want to know what I am talking about.

    3. It's a neat shot. I personally am not a fan of lens flare, but it works in this shot. Again though, you have a big foreground element smack dab in the middle of the frame.

    4. I like this shot, but then again, I like ducks. It would have been nice if you could have gotten a bit closer, either with a zoom, or cropping into them.

    Sorry about the rough critique. I'm a big proponent of aggressive cropping. We have these high res cameras, but people are afraid to crop down for fear of losing resolution. Don't be afraid to crop! And keep up the good work.

    Quite nice for a beginner. The Beauty of Rays shot is lovely.

    I like #3 a lot. You could probably stand to increase the exposure a little, but I don't know what that would do to the sun through the leaves.

    they all seem great!
    but heres some constructive criticism
    -the first photo in not straight, meaning the horizon is not horizontal (that can be fixed easy.
    -the first photo seems dark in areas. so maybe do some touch up in Ps or aperture to bring out the colors more

    other then that good work, keep on shooting
