You've captured this scene very well by a good composition and bright tone, so it's interesting and impressive to see the brown rocks with elegant shape. The whole is harmonized well by beautiful color & light balance. And, the contrasting blue sky draws out an additional good atmosphere, too.
Very well done.

It seems that the horrible war in Syria has changed the faces of many Turkish cities because of the huge number of refugees. It's heartbreaking to see so many people, in many cases well educated, reduced to beggars. This is a good photo but it makes me very sad.

The natural arches formed by the rocks make for a pleasing long perspective. The people give a sense of scale. The image is well exposed and has some lovely textural detail. The reflections are a bonus.
Cathedral and Chapter House by snunney (85749)

I like how you have angled your shot, using, what I presume is the chapter house, to lead with most interesting details, to the focal majesty of the cathedral. It really is an elegant building, with such splendid features, constructed centuries ago! I am amazed at the beauty created by craftsmen, with fewer tools and less engineering, than nowadays. Of course, there would have been no health and safety!!!
This was a difficult shot in such strong sunlight but you coped well.
Have a good day,
It's cold and windy, here. The winds have been gusting relentlessly for a few days!
