I would say you did a pretty good job for your first time. I am new to photography as well so I don't really have any CC but I like #3 and #4 the best.

I have never seen trees growing or dead in the sea/ocean like that before!

Pretty good for a first attempt, I like the second last one the most I think. Shame you clipped off a little bit of the tree.
The exposure looks a little off in them but I am on the phone so..... Also one or two don't look 100% straight and maybe try sticking to the rule of thirds a bit more.

All being said I'm a noob too but I think for a first effort you done very well sir! Good stuff :)

Did you use a cpl on the last shot? You really nailed the sky in it. Or is it because you changed settings or faced camera away from the sun

When I took these I have to admit I was excited to be out and forgot to check the levels each time I moved my tripod. A rookie move for sure lol. My camera doesn't have the grid for the rule of thirds. but think i am getting better eye balling it and correcting it in photoshop. As far as a Cpl., I have no clue what that is. The beach is at Botany Bay in edisto island South Carolina.

Very good, these trees would be great with a long exposure using a big stopper to smooth out the clouds and sea.

Next time you're at that beach, try to take with you neutral-grey filter, it makes water look like one big stream.
Also, check this app, i see, try to make some slideshows, ocean theme is very suitable for this

#3 & 10 are my favorites. The long exposure keeps the water smooth, with rich color in #10!
