The colors of this photo is beautiful. The subtle sepia goes very well with the historic building. The woman in the photo adds a story, and thus making a static architectural picture more interesting.
Wide angle is a wonderful lens. It just annoys me that it distorts photos. This can be fixed in photoshop if you so wish.

This is an amazing photo! I didn't realize this existed in Laos! It reminds me of Guatemala.
Bright sunny days are probably the worst for capturing water flow. A ND filter can be used, but the harsh contrast of the sunlight still exists. I'm glad you had the luck to have an overcast day and your tripod with you! The steps made this photo stand out from the rest!

Good capture of the moment of their smiling faces. I like how you have composed and cropped the photo. It gives it a background story. However, the man in the background is still a bit distracting unfortunately. but given the circumstances that one cannot control, it's a good shot! Thanks for sharing.

Nice dramatic photo... there's a lot going on, but it makes it interesting rather than distracting. The birds catches the eye, and then it takes you to the people in the photo. They all seem to tell a story. While maybe it's not the best composed or exposed photo, I find it intriguing. Thanks for sharing.

Having recently been to the Taj, your concern is shared. But it's how you see the journey differently rather than taking a new journey that matters, especially now where pretty much every part of the world has been explored! I'm glad I got to see this photo of yours, showing the Taj in a different light. It is said that it changes throughout the day and I can see that it is true. Thanks for sharing.

First of all, thanks for taking the effort into wriing the note!
This picture captured me because of its solid colours. The composition is great as well as it draws your attention to the sculpture, and the deep depth of field lets one able to admire the architecture in the background as well. The sunset and your choice of high contrast make it dramatic and interesting.
Thanks for sharing.

I love these places as well... a bit run down, rustic but possesses a certain charm, especially when they're colourful colonial buildings. I think this photo is a bit underexposed. And perhaps it was too bright of a day to evenly expose more of the building, which I would have liked to see. Thanks for sharing anyway.

Nice composition. The use of black and white exaggerate the curves. Perhaps scout out one day to see if it's possible to get a nicer light so you get a nicer reflection on the glass, or preferably no reflections.
Nice tonal range, albeit slightly over exposed in the top park of the Opera House.
Thanks for sharing!
