I could zoom in, but…

…there’s just something to it when you present people in relation to their surrounding. How insignificant we all become when compared to the vastness of this earth we live in. The picture is one example where the photographer relies on a judgment call – zoom in on the two dock workers or take in the whole scenery. I chose the latter, seeing how the barren environment of just sea and sky presented the immense scale of nature compared to its inhabitants. Of course, that shapely, orange cloud (it was late afternoon) and its colored reflection on the sea, was a bonus.

  1. Yes, I agree… This shot tells a very ‘large’ story…
    Love the orange reflection.

      The wide scenery around the workers compelled me to include the surroundings. Its a decision that confronts a photographer when taking a picture – what will work best given the subject and situation. Thanks always Anisjarossi!
