The End or the Beginning?

    Newer Older

    This time last year I was preparing for the trip of a lifetime. Buried back at the end of my archives are my 2004/5 Peru pictures. Taken on film, with an unforseen light leak, scanned badly in a high street shop and saved on disc - I uploaded them with the hope of storage until such time I could 'repair' them. My Broadband access crashed on Friday - so guess what I've been doing this weekend!

    If you have the time or the inclination to go on a virtual trek of the Inca Trail all the way to Machu Picchu please feel welcome to browse the rejuvenated set. If not - I'll leave you with this one as a taster.

    ....and before you ask - it was the rainy season so it absolutely WAS this green. (Oh yes - and it WAS fantastic!!)

      Peru is a place I've always wanted to visit and now after seeing this picture it's a must. Beatiful image, it's very surreal.

      What a wonderfully dramatic shot of Machu Pichu. Nicely done.

      Thankyou all -it's difficult to get a different take on this much visited landmark, but I'm glad you've enjoyed the walk with me on the final stretch into the Lost City.... :-)

      Spectacular capture but this is a very standard composition. Congratulations but missing the uniqueness factor.

      I like this but I think you could crop the top or bring down the brightness of the clouds.

      Much better; I concur with Mr Normal's changes.

      Machu Picchu (as some other places) makes you easily win 5 points for the place alone. but this photo is well composed, though nothing special in it, therefore

      Like everyone else said - great place, somewhat boring composition - what if you got right up close to the rock wall on the left, so it was much more dominant in the picture? just an idea...

      Final rating in the 100 Points group is 67 Points.

      Good Score!

      Please publish this photograph in the 60-69 Points group and thank you very much for participating in the 100 Points Group.

      Thanks everyone for taking the time to vote- I'm actually quite pleased with this score as this picture was taken in the days before I joined flickr and I was only very casually interested in photography, so I had not really been influenced by the things I have learned about composition since I became more involved. :-)
