The first one is my favorite made my jaw drop .. its just stunning in too many ways to describe.

The 3rd and 5th are also amazing. On the 5th one ... I'm not sure yet how I feel about the sun ... my first thought was "I wonder how it would have looked with the sun behind the leaf".

The 2nd one was kind of interesting .. but I think I am still in awe from the 1st one to truly appreciate or comment on it. Same with the 4th one.

Wow - I really like your work!

Flint1: I like the use of over-saturation, and the effect of using a simple composition for a dramatic effect. I also like the amount of sky you chose to include; enough for context, but not so much that it detracts from the real subject. This would get a very high rating from me in a challenge.

Fountain1: Not crazy about this one. The motion blur is a bit too much for my taste, and the highlights where the water is hitting are removing too much detail from the surface. I admit this is purely my tastes - just what I woudl be thinking if I'd taken it.

Landscape1: This is absolutely my favorite style of landscape... You've conveyed a great sense of tranquility, and such a rich field of color. The textural contrasts between the water and plants makes for interesting boundaries, and the use of reflection is the icing on the cake. I shoot nature because I want to capture those things I enjoy. You've captured a moment perfectly.

Toad: Great stock image. Nothing I'd put on the wall, but I'd say it's a shoe-in if a nature mag needs a great image of a toad.

Plant1: Is that a hand holding the leaf in the foreground? I like to overall feel of the image, but the darkness seems to be overpowering the rest of it. Maybe cropped a bit (not a lot) more tightly on the right?

Thanks for sharing them - great work!!

Colours remind me of the latest print I just put up for sale but other way round in terms of more sky, less grass. It's that same rich blue and gold. Yours is better of course at the horse just turns it into magic.

Position of horse works so beautifully... like he's looking happily into that freedom of space before him.

Wow... I mean WOW!

I absolutely love the first one. Too bad there isn't some kind of challenge going on right now that you could squeeze it into. #1 for sure!

I like #3 a lot as well. #5 would be my next favorite, then #4 then #2.

Great job! Awesome work.

I can't possibly say anything meaningful after all the comments. Except my jaw dropped and is still on the floor.
