All your shots are very good, but that first one is killer! I love the colors.

Is the second one Orion? I'm not up on my constellations...

Nice pics...

Nice. Is that a plane in the sky and its reflection in the water in #2?

I like #1 very much. The vignetting works fine. May be you should check the horizon.

The lighting is very nice on these. I think if you placed the horizons based on the rule of thirds, these images will look even better.

Rule of thirds? fill me in on this one, I'm mostly a self taught photographer, so the terminology confuses me, do you mean equal sky to land to water?

and Ancientritual; you know, I never really noticed that on the water. i'm not sure if is a plane, or a boat, it does not line up with the plane so I am assuming it is a boat

and ordo; Thanks, that is how the picture was shot, no vignetting added to the image. Glad you like it

and, I take criticism very well guys, so if you have any pointers, please give. Can only get better with learning

Sure, the rule of thirds advocates placing key elements of the image relative to a 9-box grid that is defined by horizontal and vertical lines placed about a third of the way each on the image. Take a look at this link for a better description and example. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rule_of_thirds

Based on this, if you take an image with the horizon at about 1/3rd of the way up, or 2/3rd of the way up vs. placing it in the middle, it adds a lot of appeal to the image. Sometimes, you can crop the image to alter the placement of the horizons. Let me know what you think.

This is basically an example on the rules of thirds using your photo. Sometimes by using an example and reading about the thirds rule you can understand the concept at a faster rate. Sorry about the crop....
