Nice pictures as usual. I've been there (Ft, Lauderdale port). That may be the STAR Princess ship in the upper left I took on a cruise last year.

can you give a link to them?

They are extremely picky about the pics and can be overzealous.

Let's see more.

Just based on the things you have on that page, here are some critiques...

You need to crop/frame better. There's just waaay too much blue hanging around, and it makes the picture feel static and boring. It might be that your lens isn't long enough, or you're not taking advantage of whatever megapixels you have to play with, but get us in closer to the essence of the picture. (From what I've seen on Airliners, they really like rivets.)

The helicopter pic is okay. Maybe if you have a snap of it closer to the ground, there'd be more tension, and maybe a faint dust cloud?
