Photo TR: New Brunswick
So my Grandmother died a couple weeks ago at the age of 102, my brother and I hopped on a plane and flew to New Brunswick where we joined up with the rest of the family. We invaded my mother's friend's cottage on the beach and spent a couple days there, then took advantage of being in the area and drove to the Bay of Fundy. I managed to see one great sunrise and a couple awesome sunsets, lucky given the forecast called for rain the entire time. The only crappy weather we saw was in Fundy, but I feel like I did the best I could manage while shooting there.
Still getting the hang of a better camera. C&C is greatly appreciated.

Awesome shots. I'll comment on a few of them since you asked for C+C and i'm trying to up my game also.
#1, the gravel on the bottom right keeps pulling my eye down to that corner. Even getting rid of just that very bottom strip of shoreline hugging the bottom of the photo seems to help that. Love the shot though. A bit of curvature on the horizon from the lens. Curious to know what you are shooting with and what lens for this shot?? Might also crop some of the top off just above where the color of the cloud ends making for a bit more of a panorama framing.
I really like how my eyes follow the shorline to the horizon and over to the sun. Nice!
the rocks on the bottom left distract my attention, take a look at it with the rocks cropped out. With it out my eye is led along the textured shore water up to the person. He's standing right at the converging lines of the horizontal distant shoreline and vertical textured shorline water which I find awesome. The piece of slope he's standing on also leads to him. Really nice shot and I totally dig the composition. I'd hang this on my wall. On the distant shoreline right in the middle there's a little blip of light that can be cloned out. Wouldn't be the same withoug the person there. I can imagine standing there at peace in his place.
Between 4 and 5 I personally like 4 better, just hanging out watching the views and people (dog) watching. Looks more natural and relaxed. #5 they look a bit more stiff and posed and I like the softer light in 4.
The first 3 are my favorites, with #3 being the best.
What camera / lenses are you using?

All good shots, really dig 3, 5 & 9
The person in 3 adds alot to the overall picture. Would be interested to see the crop but the rocks on bottom left didnt detract from the image at all for me. 10 & 11 both have a cool subject but the overcast light makes it just seem kinda washed out and less focused. would be cool to catch the same image during sunrise/sunset or with some light HDR work.
We've won it. It's going to get better now. You can sort of tell these things.

Thanks for the input guys. T2C, using a D300 and the 18-105mm lens. For some damn reason I waited until I got back to Calgary before purchasing the 35mm f1.8, oh well.
Here's a crop of #3. It does look cleaner without the rocks, but I'm not sure I like how far the person is pushed to the side.
