The small aperture gave a large depth of field, so the foreground as well as the distant horizon were in focus. The low ISO setting reduced the potential for noise. To get a proper exposure with the low ISO and small aperture required a long shutter speed. Though stabilization might be at work here, I suspect it was more likely a tripod.

Probably not handheld. [suB]:-)[/suB]

The longer shutter speed would smooth out the waves in the water, leaving a nice reflection.

I'm seeing a trend here. (Canon) (... though, certainly, any camera could take these shots.)

The first three were taken with a wide angle lens, maybe even the kit lens. Certainly the kit lens on the XSi would be capable of these types of shots, and that could also handle your landscape shots as well.
