    I REALLY like #1... What if you adjusted the curves a bit and maybe threw a 2:1 aspect ratio at it?

    I'm just a newbie at this, so don't put too much weight into my C&C. <GRIN>

    I agree with bus_rider on #1 about the crop. So much sand of all the same texture makes it feel too open. The birds lined up nicely for you.

    I really like #2. At first I thought the people should be a little more centered, but after more consideration have decided I like it just how it is.

    The others are nice pictures but feel empty somehow to me.

    3: Maybe if that break were splashing onto an animal or person? :lol:
    4: Beautiful! I can't help but think a nice boat in the water would really bring it to life. :)

    I like all of the photos, but number 5 seems somewhat hard to look at.

    I understand each photographer has their own preferences and characteristics, but perhaps using a polarizer to cut the harsh glare on the water would enhance the photo.

    Number 5 is also a bit harsher looking then I would like it to be,
    and I was using a polarizer, but I also needed an ND filter.. Next purchase...

    It might me just me but in #2 the bigger body of water is really blue and where it is coming over the rocks makes it look like a blue dye.
