OK, ill be the first.

if you are looking for critques it is best to post only one photo per thread so people can comment on the same photo. Otherwise, feel free to post away in the other sections.

Some general critiques though.

Lose the date stamp.

try to keep your horizon level unless you are obvioulsy tilting it for effect (shots 2..) you can easily fix this in any editor.

dont crop off pieces of your subject (the top of the eifel tower...)

watch for overexopsure (sky in venice shots...)

So, you do have some nice shots in here. With a little work from your editor thay can be made real nice. I notice alot of barrel distortion in some shots. I dont have an exif viewer here but I imagine they are at full wide angle. You can correct in some editors or shoot more telephoto or get a better lens. Clone and crop (clone out the window reflection in the venice shot for example, crop out the light posts that stick into the frame in some belgium shots) Play with saturation and levels as some shots just look flat.

whew. Good shooting. Looks like a heck of a trip.

When taking pictures from the inside of a boat, make sure the glass windows don't reflect what's behind you (the venice pier picture).
