    Oh the photos of the guys surfing are really cool if you zoom in on them as the camera picked up alot of clsoe detail. I was really amazed. You can actually see the guys expression on their faces.

    This is another thing about photography.
    Living in such an exotic place gives your images that extra WOW factor.

    Agreed on the surfers, if you have a good zoom lens, try and get close up shots of them.

    3rd flower shot could use some rule of thirds. and maybe use a macro.

    just my opinions.

    The best 'zoom' type lens I have right now is a 55-200 lens. I would love to get a much better one but they are so expensive lol. So atleast for now I'm using the kit lens.

    I chose to put medium sized images on here since the original ones are so big, however with the original size the surfers 'pop' much more. I'll have to read about the rule of thirds though lol. Thanks for the comments.

    In my opinion the strongest shots are the first and last. To me they have good composition and interesting subjects. Nice work!
