    On one of his trips to the Amazon ...

    Have I made any mistakes?

    On one of his trips to the Amazon, Mark strayed from the marked path and reached a captivating area with a babbling brook surrounded by lush trails. Along the shore, vines crept over logs creating a unique ambience. Mark stood in awe admiring the sublime scene, prompting him to capture the moment with his camera.

    Edit: Where's the "thank button"?

    Re: On one of his trips to the Amazon ...

    Dutch van der, in your first thread you correctly put a sentence you were asking about in the thread title and 'Have I made any mistakes?' in the body of your post.

    Since then you have twice made 'Have I made any mistakes?' the title, which is unhelpful. I've changed this thread title for you.

    ***

    If you can't see the Thank button, it should appear when you have made ten posts.

    ***

    Please post your sentences for correction here in Editing & Writing Topics rather than Ask a Teacher.

    ***

    Please address probus by his username and not 'man'.

    Well, thanks for walking me through your guidelines, I guess. I'll try to abide by them.
    Have you taken a look at my passage? Can you spot any mistakes?

    1. I would say "captivating spot", to sound more specific.
    2. The side of a brook or river is called the bank.
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.
