The background in the first picture (leaf) was too busy and distracting. Perhaps a shallower DOF would have blurred it out some (or Photoshop). I liked the idea though.

I really liked the "old and new" one. Don't know why, but it grabbed me. I also liked the digital photo of the flower in gallery 2.

The dock one with the green and clean a.k.a. "Old and New" was a dock that had some boards replaced on it. For some reason it takes long to load. Even for me on a cable modem.

Thanks for the comments.

I think the one of the ship's windows is interesting as is "old & new" the similarity of these photographs is the geometrical lines. The others don't really say much although the seagull in the photograph of the ferry makes a nice focal point. All in all good job, keep them coming.

You might want to check out how you post your photos. With several pics on a page, the pages load very slowly.

I grabbed and resaved "amarylis.jpg". Your original came in at around 270Kb. Saved as a good quality jpeg (compression level 10 in Paintshop Pro), I got a filesize of only 87Kb.

If your hosting service is displaying large uploaded pics at reduced sizes you might consider resizing to 640x480 before you upload. It will make your site much slicker and more user-friendly.

Hey thanks for the comments! I'm using Irfanview to resize the photos since I took them at the highest settings on the F717 (2560 x 1280 I think). I don't have Photoshop for any of that fancy stuff yet. But I'll see what I can do about compressing them a little smaller. I noticed they seemed to load medium slow even though I use a cable modem. My friend who uses a 56k said they loaded fine. I'll see what I can do. Thanks for the comments and suggestions!

Your composition is good. In a few photos #1 The closeup of the ship windows. I would have been looking for someone gazing down at the water or a "senior" holding onto a hat because of the breeze. # 2 If you live in the area of the "pot and bush" photo. I would take the same shot on a sunny day with shadows streaking across, and a cat. # 3 The back of the ship, ..sunny day with more birds or people.
When I take a shot I look at the overall scene within the scene I grab the subject and the most challenging part to capture the IMPACT !
