    Got some more pics for feedback. Love to hear what you think and suggestions for improvements (both in composition and post-processing).

    I like them all generally. #1 is out of this World. Could be in Time Magazine. Maybe not the cover, but inside of it. :lol:

    What exactly is #4?

    I like every single one. Great work!
    The only thing I would've done differently is in the second one, I'd have the focus on the baboon in the back.

    Exactly right, it's the Church of Saint George in Lalibela.

    #1- why did you cut off the rest of his leg?

    #2 is blurry

    #3- your focus is on the clump of grass, try focusing on the eyes

    #4- try looking down more to get the base. there's no grounding to the object. alternatively, zoom in and get detail of the top. I'm a big fan of taking both overview and detail shots of a scene.

    #5- pan down and get more of the kids and less of the sky above. I'd like to see what that one kid is holding.. also, try an f-stop so you get all 4 kids in focus

    Really good feedback. I agree with #1, my one regret about that pic is that i cut off the leg cause otherwise i really like it.

    #1 is the best but i would have moved position so they were not squinting
