Thanks, Spiv & Sonia. We do seem to have been placed in a less-traveled area.
I've been doing some edits & crops, so here are a couple more. Tell me what you think.

Can't find my post where I also make the comment we were sent to a less trafficked area, Sonoran Desert?
I like your composition overall. More practice with the exposure. What digital photography program do you have?
The stone table with the incense...try getting rid (cropping out) the floor and concentrate more on the table and the incense. Don't put the incense smack in the middle of your picture (regla de tercios)
The picture with the purple umbrella...try getting rid of the washed-out sky.
