    some are good, others should have been excluded, like the shot of the cameras, its not only not intresting, but the exposure and color balance are off

    keep shooting nature

    Very nice collection. You def. have some good stuff. Only thing I dont like are those black/white sections on top and bottom of the pics. I know youre trying something different which is cool but they dont do it for me.

    A little strong on the USM. Is it from the camera or photoshop? If it's from the camera, you may want to turn USM off and apply it in photoshop.

    Otherwise, I'm very impressed. Nice work.

    Overall, you've demonstrated you have a good eye and you do a nice job post processing and present the photos well with your borders. The only thing I can complain about is some of the photos look oversharpened, and a few of the macros are not framed quite as convincingly as your others (perhaps a limitation of the camera). But, if you are a happy post processing your images, then I'd consider cropping them and figuring out ways to make sure that each image you present is flawless. Not too shabby though =)
