I think taking good photos on a trip can be very difficult, or at least difficult to do well. The tendency seems to be to take posed pictures of the traveler(s) and a bunch of pictures of the sites. That gets pretty boring for anyone who wasn't on the trip.

So, while it helps to have an explanation on lighting and composing the shot, I think it would be more helpful to discuss different strategies which might help people find a more creative way to pick a shot that better captures the essence of the location, the journey, and the rider. I know that is much harder to do, but you asked!
