Leslie Reid Posted January 24, 2018 Share Posted January 24, 2018 You are invited to upload one or more of your landscape photos and, if you’d like, to accompany your image with some commentary: challenges you faced in making the image? your intent for the image? settings? post-processing decisions? why you did what you did? the place and time? or an aspect you’d like feedback on? And please feel free to ask questions of others who have posted images or to join the discussion. If you don’t feel like using words, that’s OK too—unaccompanied images (or unaccompanied words, for that matter) are also very much welcomed. As for the technicalities, the usual forum guidelines apply: files < 1 MB; image size <1000 px maximum dimension. I was thumbing by this one on the way to the one I was planning to post today, and got hung up on a sudden thought, which led to a trip to Photoshop and another cup of coffee. I’m not sure I can describe this adequately, but here goes. First, it’s pretty clear that without the bicyclist, this would be a very boring image. But what struck me was that the presence of the bicyclist not only makes the image more interesting, but also makes the landscape itself more interesting—there’s something about the presence of the anomalous human element that makes the fog feel foggy and invites me to pay attention to those strange wisps of ground fog in the foreground. With the bicyclist present, to me the landscape becomes kind of dramatic and mysterious (and that’s what it felt like when I was there); without the bicyclist, it’s just…boring.
