Wow Jeff, the first one is amazing; colours, comp and the action. I'm super envious that you get to be near the ocean so often!
Kevin: Of the b&w shots I loved the back lit leaves the best. I find processing b&w shots very ... soothing and somewhat emotive; perhaps it's one less factor, the loud colours that usually find their way into my photos. Oddly, when I was in my b&w phase, I saw every scene through the varying tones ala the zone system. After a bit I learnt to develop my own style and was more aggressive with dodging and burning; manipulating the scene.
If you'd like, I could send you this mag I bought awhile back (just checked the shelf it's there!). That helped me a lot when I was starting out. Don't give up, the constant work and experimentation will bring you there, trust me, 10,000 hrs of practice and all that jazz Drop me a PM.
Oh and what was that Milton Bradley game with red and white counters?
