I like the framing on most of them. Those fountains, if I'm not mistaken...Botanical Garden? They look cool, but are tough to snap a shot of...I have a tough time getting the picture of those to come out the way I see it in my mind. Nice though especially once you do some basic adjustments.

The first butterfly shot is very nice...your angles and colors look great. I might bring in the frame even more to really emphasize the focus on the subject.

I like the 1st fountain pic compared to the 3rd - The darker seems to bring out the beads of the water better - I only know (2) things about photography and that is JACK & SHIT so I prolly have no real value here

Nice pics. The butterfly ones are good. But, next time have the butterfly facing you and smiling.

I couldn't find one to face me for the life of me. I followed that one around for probably 15 minutes. People were probably laughing at me

I like the framing of the pink flower that's closer up... The pink rose (IMO) would look better cropped closer. LOVE the perspective shots.

Namaste

I like that first waterfall pic, I know some people like when the water is blurred a bit but I'd rather have the sharpness as it fell

Something is a bit off with the lighting. They're a little dark and the contrast is off. A little photoshop work can help liven them up a bit. Here's one of your flower shots with some of the less interesting background (the parts that don't really add anything) removed leaving the more interesting background.
