Hi everyone, because you not supposed to post more then one shot in this forum, I posted these in the landscape forum. If you find the time, please could you critique them and choose a favourate.

john, i really love that first shot.. the compositon is great, with the boat ont he left 1/3 and the shoreline placed nicely.. then the lovely blue background.. simply a wonderful travel/landscape shot.. i probably would have shot that exact shot had i been there.. so take that as a compliment if you want.. hehe..

the whole set is strong.. that was just my personal fav..

Thanks Dustin, I'll take it as a compliment. It was the first serious shot I took with my 70 to 200 2.8 and therefore also one of my favourates. Thanks Jaki too for commenting.

looking skiff.

I'm with Dustin on no. 1 - great shot, which reminds me of a photo on the cover of a Lonely Planet guide to Thailand, so you're in good company!

I also like no. 2, where you've applied the rule of thirds very well. There's also some interest in the water with the coral reefs (I presume that's what they are).

Thanks Frenchy, sorry to dissapoint you, but thats not correl, it is Lake Malawi which is entirely fresh water and what you see is underwater plants.
