This is the Taos Pueblo near Taos, New Mexico. It is really an interesting place. Native Americans still live here. It started to rain shortly after I took this picture. The lighting was really different as a ray of sun came through the clouds lighting the building while most of the sky was very inky.

I love this shot. I'm a sucker for the colors you get with the mountains and the pueblos. The dog really makes the shot for me. 8

This pueblo looks like a very good subject for photos that play with textures and light. But in this photo, it makes the pueblo appear more like a snapshot-style of photo vs one that could be more creative. Maybe try to narrow in on one specific part of the building like a window and door and give it some negative space. Let the natural light work for you. This was a beautiful day and it presented many opportunities. The wooden structure in the foreground is also distracting and blocks part of the pueblo.

Nice structure with some really nice color. Would be better without the dog or the people.
