What a great photograph Ian! The mist and lighting must have been very tricky, but you have captured an excellent composition. The addition of the lone figure adds dramatically to the balance and focal point. Well done.

I like the lonely dead tree and the lonely man. The mist adds a dramatic touch.

Oh my.. an amazing cliff shot. So much movement from the large tree to the small man and back. Perfect composition!

DarkElf from Perth, Australia

excellent composition! having the person in there allows for good understanding of the scale here and your use of the light gives good strength to the shapes, which in turns creates a nice dramatic effect!

Betsy Barron from Chester Springs, PA, United States

love the wee tiny person in the background to show such tremendous scale!

The human figure is for me the key to his image, great compositon and ambience, very good.
