    the last one with the palm tree - - probably don't want to crop off the top of the palm like that, try and frame it in the whole shot.

    The boys in the water is a really nice shot. The palm is a bit too cropped, and the people are a distraction (IMO). The book shot is nice, but Id crop off the negative space on the LH side of the pic, and parts of the photo look a bit soft. I like the glasses image, that one works pretty well for me.

    I love the boys in the water :) What if you considered doing something like this for this shot? This is very extreme- obviously you could tone it down- i just wanted the various effects to be obvious. I gave it a more interesting crop, upped the contrast, burned the edges (Rather poorly as well haha), did a little high pass filtering just for fun (and as I said... too much), and then sharpened just a bit. Point is... I would make the glasses shot more dramatic.
