A sense of scale.

Giving your image a sense of scale is very important. One of the best ways to do this is to add people into the image. We all know roughly the size of a person so it gives you an idea of the vastness of the overall scene.  The image that I have on here is to show the landscape but including the rock and photographer in the foreground gives a sense of depth and scale to the image.

I had gone out to do some landscape photography with Monika in the Peak district in Derbyshire, it was one of those days where the light was beautiful and clear. We walked down a gorge which has many trees and the dappled sunlight was perfect. We walked out onto the open moorland where we came across these rocks used by climbers. Slightly more daring than me she went and sat on the outcrop to take some photographs.  I took a few shots of her on the rock, I love this image as the clouds are wonderful and the detail in the rock and scene are immense. The conversion to black and white was done in lightroom.
