Not particularly 'original', but my version of the National

Geographic / Postcard picture of the ruins at Machu Picchu. Just the

opportunity for taking exposures like this justified the arduous task

of lugging ten pounds of photographical equipment over the 50kms of

the Inka Trail. Comments and critiques would be appreciated...

Nice shot. Very dramatic. I do have a suggestion: crop off the left 1/3 or so. I copied your picture and made that crop and attach that version to this critique.

Much prefer the uncropped original - keeps the sense of scale! How blessed were you to get the sunshine? Not everyone who makes the trek gets to see anything through the mist and rain! :) You're a very lucky man!
