    bit of a bump, never like to see people posting pics and not getting any replies.....

    images are a bit soft and composition could be a bit better (rule of 3rds)

    had a quick browse through your flickr and you've got some nice pics in their

    Deffinately some nice scenery there.

    Think my fave is #2 - really interesting harbour entrance and the colour of the water is good.

    When composing try and think a little about drawing the viewer into the scene, mainly done by use of foreground interest. The first is an example where this would really help as there's very little of interest apart from along the horizon line. With a bit of driftwood or seaweed or something close to the camera it would draw the viewer in more. Also remember that camera height is extremely important. I almost never shoot from eye level always almost much lower to the ground.

    Thanks
    I agree but in my defense I took the shot because the first part of the beach was in the shade and the distance beach had the sun shinning on it and looked a little different
