    the exposure of #7 and 8 is off.
    For #11 you should not have used the onboard flash, and you should have moved to get the distracting leaf out of the way.
    #12, there is two much blackness, and, though it is a nice sunset and there is no real vacation pictures without one sunset shots, the sky is a bit boring.
    On # 10, if you had waited just a few minutes you could probably have had a more even exposure across the frame, with the foreground a bit brighter in comparaison to the sky.
    But overall, those are nice vacation pics.

    Cool , thanks for your comments. Do you think if I had an ND Grad filter I would have been able to have the same exposure on #12 and light up the foreground a little bit?

    probably, though the problem here is that the source of light is close to the horizon, ND filters really help if the light comes from up high (i think).
