Hi Ben, This may not be the most exiting picture but I like this shot, because it gives me a chance to see a place I will probably not get to see any other way. Technically the picture is good; good sharpnes, good exposure. I wish you could have taken it from a higher vantage point (don't know if that's possible) so that we could see more of that vast ocean over the top of the rocks. Thanks for sharing

I love Land Rovers and I used to own a Series III just like this one. Putting the main subject dead center like this doesn't make for an exciting picture. Just by moving the camera a little and place the LR according to the Rule of Thirds would probably result in a more interresting picture. I'll give a point anyway - it is a Land Rover after all ;-)

Welcome to TrekEarth! Stone bridges are always good photo subjects and this is a nice effort and the people on the bridge gives a sense of scale. The difference in light levels between the sky and the foreground has lead to parts of the bridge and the foreground becoming underexposed. Not a lot you can do about that apart from shooting early in the morning or in the evening or to use a grey grad filter to even out light levels.

Pretty much as close as you can get to a picture perfect postcard of Chichen Itza. Love the skies and the person on the steps giving a sense of scale. Not really a critisism, but I wonder what it would look like if you had pulled back a little to give a bit more space on the left side. Great shot!

Nice shot. Good framing and great view. I like how the primary colours dominate the picture. I also like how the wall in the bottom of the frame points to the church and leads the eye to the main focal point of the image.

Adding foreground interest or framing a view with a tree or something else is often a good compositional tool. In my opinion there is just too much "dark tree" in the foreground here. Instead of leading the eye into the view in the background it acts as a barrier.
