    Technically speaking these are ok. Creativity-wise, I would call most of them snap shots. The first few suffer from bland lighting. Time of day and lighting conditions are key when shooting landscapes. Photography is all about light and composition.

    Your time-lapse shot of the creek is the best but you are trying to put too much into your frame. Your fire shot is nice, but the composition is lacking and it really doesn't do anything for me. EDIT: Your last shot of the river and mountains is ok, but again, I think you're trying to include everything in the shot and therefore you end up with nothing. Look at the details of a scene and try shooting on a smaller scale.

    The top one would look great as a cropped square with the island in the center

    There was one in particular that really reminded me of Glacier National Park. I was just wondering.

    Since you asked for advice or critique:
    #1 - pay more attention to lighting conditions. You could have either exposed this image more and made it an interesting silhouette or exposed it less and had more detail.

    #2 - Not bad. No clear subject but the strong rock cliff and house do hold my interest.

    #3 - It's tilted but using Photoshop you can rotate it back. Exposure is a little heavy.

    #4 - I find the foreground bush distracting.

    #5 - Better. You might try it as a cropped, contrasty black and white.

    #6 & 7 - Much better. I like both of these.

    #8 - Good exposure. It would be stronger if it was cropped tighter IMO.

    #9 - I find this shot kinda boring. Don't know what else to say.

    #10 - It's a bit hot (contrasty) but I like it.

    Keep in mind I'm not a pro. Just trying to contribute constructively.
