Gee :3
I like the sunset ones best, but the others are very good too!
Are they ones you've taken while in France?

The 2nd one, I can see a few slight mistakes when you were trying to do a color on gray touchup, other than that they all look good! Just curious, how long have you been doing photography?

On the grayscale w/ color focal you do have some mistakes. If you don't mind saying what software you used I would be glad to help with edge detection. :D NVM looked below.

The beach and sunset pictures are great.

What camera do you use?

Yeah. I would have used photoshop where I had more tools, but I had to use picnik instead. Thank you though!

Not long at all. I just picked up the camera and took a few shots. I really, really love it though.

The sunset on the beach, and the last one, with the lighthouse. They're very soft, understated, yet warm and relaxing. The colors blend wonderfully together, and the contrast between them is just right. All of your pictures are very good, though.

I use a crappy one my sister has. I want a good one though. My mom said she's going to buy me one.

Try to get a camera with manual controls. Aperture adjustment, flicker rate, manual focus, and ISO adjustment. A 10x or higher optical zoom would also be helpful.

If you need help understanding what everything does I'll be glad to.

They're pretty nice. You might want to think a bit more about composition, rule of thirds, selective focus and overall exposure(even though i know sunsets are difficult to expose properly).

Your fourth photo there is rather drab. It might look better if you were closer to the couple to make them more of a apparent subject as their being so far off and tiny makes them appear insignificant and without the sun visible, it's hard to understand what the visual subject is.

The light house could probably have used some more exposure as it just seems too dark overall.

Your sixth photo of the sunset is good. I like that one. :)
