Eddie, love the first two. I think I would have liked the red door better if it was a bit farther into the frame with the footpath leading in. Of course, that is all based on guessing that there was anything usable outside what you show... The first one would be a great Christmas card.

That's indeed a very nice shot.

If you want to get shots like that, you will need to practice your composition. You will need to learn how to nail the exposure. Also, it is important to have the patience to wait for the right lighting. Shots like this cannot be taken at any time of the day, you will need to shoot when the sun is low and light warm and soft. If the weather is bad, you may not be able to take such shots for days in a row.
Anyway, this forum is a great place to start if you want to learn about photography. Posting pictures and asking for critique is a great help.
Kiwi, nice shot. How did you take that one?? Did you use a filter? It looks a bit as though you took it through the windshield of a car, with a sunblocking coating on the upper part.

I could tell you but I wouldn't want you to get all pissy if it's the wrong brand

Some beautiful and stunning shots as always in this wonderful thread!
Eddie, I love the red-door, red in a landscape really stands out (except in an autumnal/fall shot I guess )
Kiwi, stunningly beautiful, both Point Nepean and the later shot! , &
Lukas, I like the lines and colours from Redwood Park.
