[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A portrait/landscape of my Dad and his dog on top of Rodney's Pillar. All comments and critiques welcome. I have been advised to give this shot a more panoramic feel to it by cutting out more of the top and the bottom but I have posted the original to see what you think of it.

Hi Nathan, and welcome to TL.
Great shot .. love the low light (morning or evening?) and especially the way it hits the front of the dog.
I agree, maybe a little crop off the bottom, but in my opinion, maybe not the sky .. there's a nice gradient of color in the sky.
Maybe I'll try a workshop ... hope you don't mind.

Hi Nathan,
Welcome to TL. I normally am not a huge fan of humans in a landscape, but sometimes they can add a lot. In yours your father does that. He gives scale to the huge vista and let us look with him into the distance. I like that the dog is keeping an eye on you. The warm colors are wonderful and the clean sky worked out great.

Hi there and welcome to TL
my opinion is that the original is better
i love the colors of the sky and i love your dog that is watching you:)
well done!

Hi Nathan, don't think this needs cropping it works for me.

It follows the rule of thirds and makes for a nice composition.

Your Dad adds scale to the image and I love the way the dog is looking at the camera.

Keep it up.

Hi Nathan,
Welcome to TL. I think this is a superb shot, your father adds perspective and gives a focal point. In my opinion I think this would be better than the panoramic one, but thats just me. TFS

Hi Nathan,

Welcome to TL, I have to agree with both chefcop and bri about this shot. I really love the low light and the dof is brilliant great colours and sharp details great notes to, well done.
