    Our Focus this Friday is on Landscape photos that include people in the image.

    I am a bit late starting this as I have been looking in my archives for such a photo, I know somewhere I have a landscape photo where I had gotten a person into it too. Now if I can only find it. :eek:

    So add your photos to this thread, and I will add mine too once I find it. :)

    These are great Kyle! With your daughter I actually thought for a minute you were pulling our legs. It took a minute to spot her!

    Not fond of the idea of including people in my landscape work, generally. Found this one though, from Atlantic Spain (the model is one of my Workshop participants), where a person give a pretty good idea about the scale of this sea stack (called the Pickaxe):

    I typically avoid scenes with people other than iPhone shots but sometimes folks just linger so long you have to take your shot with them in the way anyway :D

    Well I had to look hard to find a landscape with a person in it. But I did manage to find one with Mike Koopsen in it. So here it is.

    Thanks for another nice Friday Focus Jim. As a climber/skier I'm partial to a person or two in the landscape, so I have a lot of them.

    You have to look close to see the ant like lines of climbers heading to Rainer's summit.

    YOU would think that person would just take their photo and move! Quite the rude person, I am surprised you didn’t toss a rock at them.:rolleyes:

    Really good ones Jim. In fact when I picked this you immediately came to mind as one who would have done great photos for this Focus.

    Not as closely as I had to look to see Kyle's daughter! I really like the lines in the dunes shot and, of course, your B&W

    I had just processed this one this morning. I really liked the nascent fins in the "moraines" at White Sands, but nothing worked until I was heading back & the people who woke me up by not realizing how clearly voices carry were in the perfect spot. Then I could think nice things about them ;)

    Thanks, Jim. It took me years to get there. 1st & last attempt was foiled by missile testing. They used to post just several days before, but now it seems they post the closings months in advance. Definitely makes it easier to plan.
