Great job! Makes me want to be there.

This is a nice composition. I like the perspective on the palm in the foreground and the interest in the sky. This would be improved by leveling the horizon. A little more contrast and saturation might also help a little.

A nice bland beach shot. I'm sure you had a lovely time at this place but the colors don't pop and the water is such a small sliver of the image it just doesn't convey Paradise to me.

an increse in saturation would make this a killer shot.
also very stok in framing and concept, not a bad thing but seen a 100 shot just like it. GL

Nice island shot. Horizon looks a bit tilted, and there isn't much happening in this shot that captures my attention.

You might try adjusting levels to enrich your colors. Also, square your image so that the sea is level. The palm's lean will be more dramatic and accurate.

If you could maybe clone the beach objects away and straighten it a bit, this would be a great shot.

This is a hard image to critique. There is nothing here to jump out and say wow! Its a nice picture to put in the album and say I was there, however here there is nothing special to show. The clouds are nice. Perhaps alittle closer to the water, showing the waves, the hills in the background and the clouds.

Definitely needs a straighter horizon - and maybe some people playing beach volleyball!

The horizon tilts a bit, but otherwise, nice shot

while it does look like somewhat of a paradise, i would like it better if the horizon wasn't slightly tilted

I think you should have the horizon straight, and also try to get the nice tropical colours out a bit more in post processing.

The tilted horizon bothers me a little but not much, other than that pretty good but I suspect it will get lost in this huge challenge as it´s fairly ordinary and nothing really that catches the eye. For what it´s worth this shot makes me wanna visit this location though :)

Every comment is going to say the same thing...so I wont, I'm sure you've made friends with the rotate tool by now. Otherwise, postcard material, and I mean that in a complimentary way.

Good shot, might want to straighten horizon : )

Nice idea with the tropical atmosphere. Unfortunately, the horizon goes downhill, emptying out the ocean to the left.
