Don't post so many photos in one thread. It discourages folks from commenting.

Ok... Thank you. Will do that going forward. I thought since I took them in one go round there may be some "general" issues.

My apologies!

The top right corner of 2 bothers me for some reason, I like it otherwise.

I like the last shot the most for its cinematic feel.

I like 3. something in the way the blurred "rushing" water opens out into the calm pond is a great composition. For me at least.

#1 doesn't do much for me. The b&w conversion doesn't work very well, and the big black corner is distracting. #3 seems very flat. The colors in the water are nice, but there's no sense of depth to the photo (and I'm not sure why it seems that way). #4 and #8 are in need of a subject. The path doesn't really seem to wind away into the woods, so it doesn't lead the eye into the scene.
I like #2, although (I may be in the minority in this case) I'm not really a fan of the completely blurred water. #5 is interesting - b&w sunbeams made me look twice. I also like the decreased saturation in #7 - pretty dog, nice composition.
Nice work!

1 & 2 I don't care for the B&W conversion and don't like the black corner in either one. I would use shallower DOF since your eye is drawn to the sticks in front being in focus, I would keep the focus on the water and the sticks in front being OOF. #4 the colors are off seem to have a greenish cast and I don't care for the tree leaning in from the side too distracting. Both #4 & #8 could have been composed differently, would have liked to see the trail coming more out of the bottom left corner drawing your eye into the photo and not so much up out of the bottom of the photo. #7 is ok but once again the greenish hue is there on my monitor anyway. #3 I don't care for all the rocks being in focus in the bottom of the photo, seems to draw your eye away from the flowing water. Remember this is just my 2 cents worth, everyone likes something different, but well done keep posting.
