9.5/10
Awesome shot! Excellent exposure, focus, composition...
The only little thing I can see is that the rocks seem slightly green to me.

back to flying things:

The main subject well captured and in focus, but the flower is overexposed and distracts a bit too much. Also there is some color fringing - this is caused mostly by the lens used - not your fault.
I am giving a 6.5.

And again back to flying things... My 600D does not perform like a EOS 1D X, but this is the only camera body I have...

9/10
Great detail and perfect exposure; however, I feel composition could be a little stronger (I realize that's not as simple as it sounds when it comes to wildlife photography). Personally I would prefer the duck flying into frame and the wing is clipped.

Ok, maybe I'm nitpicking. Great shot :)

I think cropping out the top to remove the goose breast would create a better image. Also, it almost looks over sharpened.

Good use of natural light, proper DOF and good processing, however the cropping should allow a little more space to the right and I don't find the subject very interesting. I'll give it a 6/10 (also you didn't rate the photo above yours.....).

9/10 Good action shot and composition. Nice work!

I really didn't want to crop this one too much. I don't want to lose the perspective of the outer part of the tree being in focus along with the interior of the tree.

6/10 not a really interesting subject. What is it suppose to focus on?

The debris in side the tree and the bark at around the same level on the outside of the tree.

Overbaked for my taste and the subject is on the wrong side of the crop. Could be a nice pick if the colours weren't so washed out and the background illumination not so harsh. 4.5/10

Simply excellent. 9.5/10. I also really like that soccer/futbal shot a few posts up.

I personally think this is a pretty good shot. Like that you focused on the tire tracks. That twig coming out of the ground to the left is a little distracting for me.

8.5/10

9/10. The middle of the background is a little distracting for me because it is so bright. Over all though the picture is good IMHO and soft.

At the tendril ... 8/10 for me.

I find myself guessing at what the other thing is. First thought a stem, now I'm thinking maybe a metal rod part of a trellis or garden art. If that part were more obvious, different, or not there, I'd be up near a 9/10.

Pretty cool photo though. Reminds me of the wild cucumber along parts of the west coast.

**********

Here's one of several from a few days ago.

Don't think some of the others will fly in this thread, since those are somewhat revealing. So thankful the mosquitoes left this area. The green glow of sun through leaves really showed in the originals on her skin.
