    I need to start upping some of my pics here. I'm living in MExico for a while.

    These are from Uxmal, in the yucatan. This place is sick, and it kicks the shit out of the other sites (like ch'chan) because its not very crowded. you can actually photograph the sites, they don't charge you.

    Damn, I need to go travelling, but I'm too poor. :wtc:

    Nice work--I think they'd be a ton better if you had a polarizer, though. :hs:

    I actually was using a CPL (heliopan) but there were a few issues-
    First, for the most part the sun was at my back, so the CPL is pretty useless, also at the wide end, (most of these were at 17mm), the CPL causes a really noticeable black-gradient like effect from the corner :hs:

    I wish I could go back at like dawn or dusk, but the place has terrible hours :mad: oh well

    yeah, but i got so lucky this time with the lack of people. I might get a slightly better angle for the CPL, but there would be people ruining all the shots.
