    Doorway on the Taos Pueblo.
    I took this because of the multiple elements that reflect the traditions of Native Americans, including their ways of homebuilding, decorative arts, love of nature and history of amazing patriotism and service to the country.

    I think you could have made this better by staniding directly in front of it and having only the design elements in it. The angle just really annoys me.

    Sorry, I don't think so.

    Too much sun would be coming from the left, no interesting reflections in the small window and the flag in the door would just look flat without the light and shadows on the glass that give it interest.

    As one who lives in NM, I can tell you that the adobe and white paint aspect is wonderful. That is classic spanish, the adobe is obviously Native along with the hand prints, and the US flag personifies it all. Great shot!!!

    Thanks you for the comments.
    This is probably one of my all-time favorite pictures. It is very difficult to separate personal attachment from critical sense so I just give in and like this one.

    First rate.

    You obviously had beautiful exposure here, since you were battling with those reflections as well as very strong sunlight, as is evident by the tree trunk on the left. Well done.

    The texture, the mood and feel of this image is very moving to me. I love it. :thumbup:
