I am fairly new and still learning new things in the world of photography every day.
I am planning to upload a series of pictures of those ruins I added two links below. I struggle with lighting the most and since the light in those photos is a little tricky, I wanted to get some feedback on that as well as other issues you might see.
The main reason why I want to submit these and more pictures (same time/light) is, because there are no photos of these ruins in iStockphoto (at least not with the location or site name)
I appreciate any kind of constructive feedback.

A little bright for my taste, but that's me. On uploading, definitely add a 'Note to the inspector' that this is new material for the iStock collection, it may earn you Brownie points.

Thank you Whiteway I appreciate your input.
Btw how can I add a "Note to the inspector"? I normally use the DeepMeta.app.

You can post any pertinent info for the inspectors at the top of of the image description area.

#1 is likely a lighting reject. The focal point of the image is sunk into shadows while distracting surrounding elements are well lit, awkward shadow in foreground,etc.
#2 is a little more likely to get through, although the composition is awkward. The main point of interest (to my eye, the structure on the left) is uncomfortably close to the edge of the frame and even has a bit cropped off.
