[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello again,

A quick post tonight , I will be back tomorrow with critiques and comments.

I did the excursion alone at Chichen Itza Mayan City. So I relied on myself to get some auto-portraits to marked this visit.

Technically: Using my small tripod , set up on the ground shooting upward zooming a bit. My new camera with my big lens is too big for my mini-tripod (^_^).
See the map for the location.

Here I cropped it further more to a closer composition.

See you later (^_^),

Haha, great self-portrait Robert. I like the low POV. And the colors ... well that's the real stand-out thing here! The fantastic old structure on the left, the great sky, and your T-shirt color and tan (wooo!!) just jump off the page.
One little spot in the sky beside your hat!
Good job amigo.

So you were definitely at the Chichen Itza Mayan City!! Good idea to get oyu in the frame Robert and the composition works our perfectly

Hi Robert,

I didn't realize you were sooooo tall!! hahaha. Nice shot to document the vacation. I'm glad you were able to get so much of the monument in the shot (as well as your smiling face). Nice self portrait! :) Lisa

HI Robert..this is a nicely composed shot...nice saturation in the colors. This would be a good shot to use the adjustment brush in CS4..with this you can paint the light and in crease it on your face...


Hi Robert,
I like it. I can imagine your camera leaning dangerously on the small tripod... No really, this is a very good shot and a very nice souvenir to add to your album.
Nice POV and colors. Good job!


Hi Robert
Really liked the self portrait for its colors and different POV (lower). And also liked the idea if carrying a little tripod for it - I might think of doing something of the sort for my little Olympus. I donīt usually compliment guys, but your smile is not too bad too :o), helps the composition stating "I love this vacation".
Nicely done

great perspective here! self portrait photography can be frustrating sometimes. well done here my friend! thanks for sharing the interests and beauty of this ancient land!

Love and Peace Always

Well, if this isn't IndianaHooter ;o))
Very nice SP, Robert. Well, the pyramid is well exposed, you are a tad underexposed... some selective brightening on your face would be appreciated. I'd also recommend cloning out the bird (??) next to the brim of your hat, I find that it a bit distracting.
Anyway, TFS this auto-portrait. A difficult type of photography IMO.

Ciao Robert

We miss you and your work!
This here, is no longer grace, many were though.
I hope you're well, Martine too!
Enjoy your vacation well, enjoy each moment
together, and be always happy, always smile my friend.
I like a lot of you 2.
Big hugs Brazilian.
