Good to see your work again, Mike. Sorry to be late in getting around.
Day 6 - Like others said, you caught great light and it is a very photogenic site. Don't fret.
Day 7 - Very nicely judged DOF on this shot. And pumpkin orange perfectly captured.
Day 9 - Sunrise in the forest very unusual and successful shot. The sharp bark and pine needles are so "natural" and the background bokeh so abstract that they just compel one to study and enjoy the photo.
