These are some of my best landscape shots, mostly shot with the 18-55 kit and the 16-45 f4
C&C is always welcome.
Thanks for looking!

Really fine set with lots to choose. I like the traffic light shot best -- interesting composition of silhouettes, and the green light amidst the stupendous orange background is very witty. I only wish the clouds were in a little better focus on that one, and that you would use a higher-quality jpeg setting to reduce artifacts in the high contrast areas. Your Manhattan skyline shots are very nice; I like the first one especially for its beautiful tonal range. I'd consider blurring the water some to give it that long exposure look, which I think would work well here. Of the sunset (rise?) pier set, I like #1 the best, for the way the composition is mainly about the colors and beautiful reflection off the sand; the gull in motion is a nice touch and I only wish the figure in silhouette were a little closer so as to be distinct from the rocks and pier.

Thanks for sharing.

This is a good series, and like others, I'm drawn to the traffic light shot; I'm very impressed with the first one, as well.

Decent compositions with good exposures.
#5, 6 and 9 are standouts.
