Nice use of the wide perspectives. #5 looks blurry (camera shake) and could use some white balance correction. Overall, I like the compositions.

Theres a lot of photos there. Generally you will get better feedback if you just post one or two max photos. more than that and theres just too much to really concentrate and dig into.

first one is the winner for me. great view, great perspective, great timing, nice exposure.
My only critique, and its really only small, is:

- id give it a more wide angle crop, lose a little from the top and bottom, give it a much more wide angle sprawling vista type feel.

- increase the contrast in the rocks by a good bit. it took me a long time to learn this. the rocks look ok, but would look much better with more contrast, and if you printed this, they would just look completely washed out. if printing, go with a touch more contrast than you think you need.

-dodge & burn the clouds by the tiniest amount to bring out the max detail, without making them look fake. they look beautiful now, but i think you could pull a little more detail from them.

The rest of the photos just look like snaps to me, shaky, overexposed in places, quickly taken without much thought on composition. they may make great memories for you, which is awesome, but for someone who was not there, they dont say anything.

first one is a winner though. nice job.

some of my problems are due to lens..others are due to my weak knowledge about photoshop and others...thanks again and again pal

Photo B needed a bit of tweaking and removal of that terrible concrete block. Photo A needs more contrast. The other shots are generally average with little appeal except to the photographer.
