I like it a lot, Hugh.
It reminds me a little the mood of first colors films...
Good atmosphere and expression.
Funny quality of old color postcard.
Best regards. Grazyna.

Full of great earthy tones Hugh. And I like the expression of the guy in the foreground. The strong diagonal adds another dimension to the composition. Good answer to Inn about the crop, but have to admit I thought about that at first too - but you are absolutely right not to crop it. Best regards, Roberto

Finally the hats and the typical Mexican faces. Very good. I like your crop very much. It's so intimate. I can almost feel the sun burning my head just as if I was there two riding that boat. Strong gaze from the left guy. Like this one a lot.

I am so glad to see that you are uploading from your stash of 16 year old Mexico pictures. I like this one a lot. This is how you went to Guatamela? I will have to get in touch with you early next year. Thinking of going back to Chiapas as well as visit Guatamela.
By the way, how do you like the Nikon V ED? Can you make large print quality scan? How much is that baby?
