Don't normally put people in my landscape shots but this young man stopped to look at the lighthouse yesterday and stayed obligingly still for a few secs. It seems to add something to the image - what do you think?

Hmm... Seems to me like you caught him while he was taking a leak! Could explain his staying still... Wink

Nice end-result regardless of what the dude was doing! Love the composition, well done!!

An image with endless possible narrative, beautifully observed and composed.

He echoes the tower well giving a lovely balance to the image.

Happy New year, Geoff.

His presence works for me and as Dave says he echoes the verticality of the lighthouse.
I quite like a landscape with people in them, possibly because where I capture mine it's almost impossible to avoid them.

I love lighthouses so I can see why he's standing there, just gazing! A great photo!
