The Subject is too far away to have impact...get closer in IMHO.

I have had a quick look at your folio as you seem to be from around the same area, and you have some good shots, for me the photo info blazed across them is very distracting and spoiles the images.
Make a header and put your ad up top, then the images can be seen clearly.

Yep agree with the other here, very poor effort really. Your photo info really distracts and doesnt need to be there at all, the subject is to far away, the lighting is a little harsh and there no lead in to the shot, try getting up close and personal with some of the rocks when the sun is setting or rising and get the viewers attention more with some creativity rather than just a snapshot.

Not every shot needs a lead-in or a foreground. To me, it seems obvious that the ruins of the pier are the subject because they're essentially the only thing in the photograph. I don't think it needs something pointing at them saying 'Look at this!' because there isn't really anything else to look at, and I don't think it needs something in the foreground competing for attention. I also think the distance from the pier is good, as it suggests a degree of separation or even alienation that seems entirely appropriate for this destroyed structure. Of course, these are just my opinions and they carry no more weight than anyone else's.

I do agree about the logo, though. I understand you wanting some kind of watermark though, to be honest, it's so easy to clone them out that I don't think there's a lot of point. However, it's obvious from the photograph that this is 'photography' and it's obvious from the URL that it's 'by Paul Bradley' — so why not just write the URL on a transparent background? (Or, even better, outside the frame.)
