I really like this picture. I agree with what Sam said, but I also wanted to point out that it's perfectly framed, and the camera, hence also the viewer, is right in the middle of the action, with one girl about to pass to our right and the other looking like she might pass on our left. The expressions on their faces are priceless.

A nice shot, appropriately taken at what might be sunrise. I like the way the giant seems to claw at the "blanket" of clouds. I'd like it better if there were a bit of separation between the top of the face and the similar tones across the water, but that's a nit-pick.

I like this picture as is. The light is great, and it has a certain surreal quality about it. The sloping horizon combined with the horizontal water line makes it look as if a huge swell is about to crash in. Since both the coconut and the background are more or less symmetrical, I think moving the coconut off center would only unbalance the picture.

This is a beautiful composition. The ferris wheel makes a dramatic silhouette, but is sparse enough to show the sunset in all its glory. I particularly like that your viewpoint allows the wheel to encompass both the orange and blue parts of the sky and that the orange/blue boundary even seems to bisect the wheel.

I generally like your composition, but I'm bothered by the blown-out clouds and building faces and the roofline broken by the couple's heads. Perhaps a polarizer and a slightly higher viewpoint? I like the series of boat prows leading out of the frame to the left and the reflection in the water and the mix of background colors, but is that bench really pink?!
