Re: Old Pier.

I like the 2nd. Your processing with oversaturated colours and burned top and bottom suit the scene. The right corner is tight - the two bolts touching the frame aren't ideal, similarly the intrusion of the dark object below. Cloning out those distraction would tidy it up, though if you have a slightly wider original it would be nice to keep the bolts.

First photo, nothing feels quite right on that one. The false colours and darkened sky feel forced but without any benefit. A black and white conversion, dark posts with pale backdrop would be a safe option.

I don;'t think you needed a sunrise. I'd put this one large, framed on a wall. It's a beauty.

Good abstract image, but I'd tone the bright white strip in the middle down, and brighten up the part with the pillars. The white foam strip dominates too much, at least it was the first thing I saw and my eye keeps returning to it.

Colour grading is a bit over the top for me, but it's down to the personal taste.
