Alec On The Rocks

Alec On The RocksHe's got a bit of a readybrek glow about him where it seems you've lifted the exposure on him which would also explain the harsh colour noise on his arms.
Good looking fella though, next time try lighting him with, say, a flash whilst using the same low exposure values for the ambient light.

CC Again!!!

CC Again!!!Being in focus would be nice. The sharpest part is your watermark which is about as much use as your lens by the look of it.

Thorpe bay Lasso

Thorpe bay LassoThe trouble with the modifications on this site is that they are fiddled about with by the machine that is ePz and spewed out into some flash doodah which makes all your sharpening examples futile and pointless. On that note may I say that for me this needs selectively sharpening in some areas and easing up on the sharpening in others. Your foreground looks a bit 'smudgy' and needs a bit of a kick up the backside with a sharp boot, however looking at the mast, spars and guy line of the boat I would recommend easing the sharpening there.
As for the image itself it doesn't really do a lot for me except for the fact that it shows a certain level of competency.
The colours are very pretty though...and the tones of course.

Big Ben at night

Big Ben at nightIt looks over exposed to me. I distinctly remember there being some kind of clock face on the tall building in the distance.

Next time reduce your shutter speed, aperture or ISO setting or all of the above to get a better exposed shot.

Bleamoss Beck

Bleamoss BeckThe foliage at the top frames it a little for me but it doesn't half show up the CA...unless you introduced it through trying to darken the area during post production?
Colours seem a bit on the strong side too and it really needed a bit of sky rather than the expanse of grey.
I like the composition though.

Dusk at Roaches

Dusk at RoachesYou're shooting into the sun and you're expecting the viewer to believe that there is so much mid-tone light in your foreground when after years of experience the mind tells you that this is wrong unless there is light from another source which is patently not evident.
That is what feels wrong to me.

Wink

Brush work needs looking at, as it appears to impinge on the jaw line which looks amateurish at best. Specular highlights in the hair are distracting and in a commercial environment would be removed.
However, as you say, it's just a bit of fun (which photography, in my mind, should always be) and so such critique is irrelevant.

A good fun picture.

River

RiverLooks a little underexposed to me. The image is there and compositionally it works. The twig in the LH corner is a little distracting.
Next time don't stop down so much, try f16 where your lens will be sharper and try to get the exposure so that the histogram is pushed up to but not over the right hand side.
I've added a mod to try and illustrate what I mean.

Higher GreenCoal Mine

Higher GreenCoal MineBlurs your eyes a bit looking at the steelwork and I like the lead into the shot.

White balance looks far too warm to me and you need to address the dust spots on your sensor.

S A I L T O M E

S A I  L  T O  M EAt last, someone asks the relevant question.

Why do you think Homer begins the work by having Zeus discuss Aegisthus' murder? Is he planting the idea of the unfaithful wife waylaying her husband, since Aegisthus had just been killed by the son of Agamemnon?

Your use of Sail To Me as one word also intrigues me. Are you reflecting Homer's rejection of normal prose of the time within the appellative style of your picture?
