Hey guys, it's been a very long time since I've been behind the lens and I was hoping you could give me any and all criticisms. I'm used to having a defined subject in my photos whether they be a car, bike rider, skate boarder, person, etc. so it was challenging for me to get pictures I was happy with.

I really love #1, and see nothing to really critique. GREAT shot.

#2 would look a lot better with a longer exposer to smooth out the water.

#3 is just boring and crooked, sorry.

On #4, again a longer exposure would add movement to the water and clouds, and with some more DOF (foreground is OOF), it would be a great image. Nice composition. Same with #5, you may want to invest in some ND filters. You can pick up a 2-8 stop variable ND filter for $150, and it's one of the greatest investments I've made in photography.

#6 is alright, some fill flash would have been nice. It's just not an eye-catching scene though.

Thanks I appreciate the criticism, it's been a while. I was thinking about ordering some filters, I might look into a few on bh.

I liked 3 and 6. 6 would be better with the fill flash

I don't see the appeal of #3 - seems to not belong in this set. I'd clone out the lens flare in #4.
I don't think a fill flash would work in #6; it would be very unnatural and difficult to control. But what would work is HDR.
