The horizon doesn't look level; see this page for information on how to correct this. Because the only strong color in the image is the red street I think that the composition would have been improved by either converting this to B&W or by desaturating only the street. Without the clue provided by the challenge topic I'd be hard pressed to decide whether this was a photo of the statuary which three people happened to wander into or a snapshot of a family vacation. Shooting this from a low angle with the people standing near the monument and the stone figures towering over them would have been a much stronger image.

Its a little too bright (you might try setting the exposure compensation to -2/3 or -1 when shooting in such bright conditions) and the horizontal lines on the building are tilted a little to the right.

I wish you had gotten closer to the family in this image. Seems they are kind of an afterthought by there size. The Focus and POV are excellent. Good luck in the challenge!

Seems a bit overexposed but, not the easiest shot to pull off in strong light. I think more complimentary light .. a tighter shot maybe being closer up shooting up with a wide angle might have give you better results.

The humans are dwarfed by the huge statuary. It's hard to find something to really concentrate on. I wish the people were larger and more focused upon. Hope this helps as a suggestion.

I like the idea of this image, but wish the focus was on the family instead of the statues. It changes the meaning of the image.

nice photo but does not move me - maybe if the family members were positioned differently?
