theres lots of space because its a desert! thats what i was trying to get across. i have hundreds of different pyramid photos, but this is sadly one of the more successful captures.
There's lots of space not because it's a desert, but rather because of where
in the frame you placed the subject. In fact, the empty sky, not
the desert, takes up more than half the frame! Some quick horizon
basics. Also, there's nothing on the right side of the frame to draw your attention over there, so there's no balance -- it's just wasted space. Finally, study the Rule of Thirds
to get better placement of the subject in the frame.
