I can’t find anything nice to say about these. Sure, they’re pictures from a beautiful place, but a beautiful place doesn’t necessarily make for interesting photographs. These never stray away from the beaten paths of amateur-level digital photography.
Before you start replying this is too blunt and respond ‘where are your pictures?’, think about this: how can someone grow as a photographer if he/she only gets complacency for anything he/she does, even if it’s nondescript and uninteresting? Sometimes people need to be confronted with their shortcomings in order to evolve, otherwise they’ll be making the same mistakes again and again. In photography as in anything else you can think about, mind you.
Of course these pictures are quite accomplished from a technical point of view – if we forgive the omission of the spoonbill’s reflections on #7 -, but that’s not enough to cause an enduring impression and be considered great. Technique shouldn’t be an end in itself, but a means to an end.
