              B and N are my favorites.
              All the rest are quite nice except C, which I find too static. I personally can't make sense of D, although I suspect the fault is with how I process images rather than with the photo itself.

                I think nearly everyone will agree that B and N are the best captures of the bunch. B is particularly good, I think you should post it to flickr.

                For a third choice I am torn between K and L.

                Great captures, please post more.

                  B: had good potential if framed differently as in not centering the girl that's turned around and better use of the repeating pattern formed by the line of women. I think this scene would have benefited from a longer lens.

                  D: interesting use of the motion blur however it is hard to tell what exactly we are looking at. Maybe a slightly faster shutter speed or a second curtain sync flash to freeze some of the action while retaining the motion blur would have been great.

                  F: Tighter framing would have helped getting rid of all the distraction on the side of the screen (mainly bottom and right sides).

                  G: I see what you tried to do here but the busy background which is the only sharp part of the image draws the eye away from the main subject (monks).

                  H: I think this image works well. The tight framing brings attention to the colorful outfits with little to no distractions. Maybe it would have been worth waiting a bit so that the whole scene is in the shade to avoid that splash of light on the dress in the foreground.

                  L: I think "H" works better. This one is a bit underexposed and there isn't enough demarcation in the background.

                  M: Too much ground in the foreground. You should have taken a few steps to the first patch of grass and crouched down so that to get less of the uninteresting ground, more of the building and more of the 2 monks whilst still keeping the foliage at the top for framing.

                  N: This would need a closer or wider framing. Either you cut the monks just below waist or you include the feet. I would have gone for a closer framing.

                  Looking at pictures after the fact and saying what could have gone better is much easier than taking the pics in the heat of the moment.

                    I have no more decent shots from this set, taken in 2005 with a relatively rudimentary low-megapixel camera. Now that I have better equipment and more experience, I don't have the time. Alas, such is life.

                        Thanks, I've taken your suggestion on-board, and things look slightly better. On G, I went back and chose another pic that shows no motion, but has the monks sharply in focus. On M, N and F, I cropped more tightly. The problem is that I don't have enough megapixels to do a lot of cropping while maintaining sufficient pixels for a decent size 300dpi print.

                          Wait till you get your 5d3 and the megapixel problem will be solved

                          Have you tried simply cropping in 16:9 aspect ratio? You can keep your width and just chop the bottom.
