I'm always asking for people in scenes or subjects as a focal point, so here's one to have a go at. Shot last week at Skipsea near our holiday home. Walking across the fields with the sea to the right.

EOS 7D with 18/250 Sigma OS at about 150mm actual. Some slight cropping. ISO200 and hand held. Aperture priority f8 and 1/600 sec approx.

A great image Paul, one which certainly lends its self to many post narratives.

You're dead right about placing the man and his dog in this shot Paul. It makes all the difference.

this is good Paul. but i'm thinking maybe playing with curves to get more atmospheric feeling or maybe black and white.

Good one
You are right of course and have provided a good image to prove it. People (or things) add interest.

It's one man and his dog on the brow of the hill that makes a most effective focal point for this fine composition.

Hello Paul,
I saw this photo the other day...A question in my mind, but I couldn't get the answer..I thought that according to the title, the top of the image should be sharp.. no doubt about it at all.. but what about the foreground? Would it be better or worse if the image had a sharp and clear foreground? But that would be "the road leads to home "then...I could n't work out, just a thought.

Hello Jas.

I actually would have liked the man a bit sharper, just a tiny bit off on original. I think the foreground needs to be very unsharp, becoming progressively sharper to the man as emphasis on the lead into the frame. Home is actually over the hill as he is walking away from us.

However, open to interpretationas usual.

Paul
