I like #4 the most,well done. The only thing bothering me is the contrast? I think. The light coming in from the right is great.

1) the clouds seem to be the subject. so bright and pretty
2) i am enjoying how the line on the left leads my eye on a trip through the photo
3) i just like.
4) i find the most interesting believe it or not. it seems to be trying to tell a story and in some ways almost looks like two photos that have been merged because of the shade the bridge created on the water. i really can't tell you why i like this one but i do.
5) very nice. a couple of these look like they are to advertise for a traveling brochure or something.
beautiful park. and actually something i just noticed... were you doing a little dodge/burning on #5? there seems to be some odd looking dark spots between the trees

I used a setting in Topaz Adjust to start with for an extra layer of texture on that one, and the problem is that it plays with the contrast to the point of creating "halos" sometimes....which I try to eliminate, but didn't spend much PP time on this one........I definitely will go back at some point and take care of that though :) But yes, I did some dodging/burning on a couple of these, including that one.

Nice photos Tim, my family and I love Siesta Key, we have been coming there during the summer for the past 15 years, it is a beautiful area.

Thanks!! Yes I'm very lucky I live in such a picturesque place, makes for less chance of running into a shooting block! lol

#4 is a winner, BUT lose that vignette.
#3 is a good competent shot. Fix the sky. It's purple.
#2 is pretty good. Lose the railing. It's distracting and really doesn't lead me anywhere into the shot. Fix the sky here also. More purple.
#1 is a nice idea, but all the extraneous stuff like electrical boxes, piers and parking lots are all fighting for attention.
#5Halos. Halos, Halos. Fix them or toss this shot in the recycle bin.

Thanks!

Yep, the more I look at #5, the more halos I see, you're right...I'm gonna go back to the drawing board on that one. Also will try taking the vignette out of #4.

BTW, nice B&W's on your site.

I replaced #4 on my Flickr site with the updated, non-vignette version, as well as fixed #5 to remove most of the haloing :)
