Photography myths - sense of scale
3

This one caused an interesting discussion on the landscape photography sub forum a few months ago.

So the myth is, a 'human element' in a photo gives a sense of scale. It obviously does when a person is put right next to another object. Otherwise the human element can be very deceitful.

As an example, below is a shot of me taken by my relative - does the human element give you a sense of scale?
