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?

I think this is a good example of the scaling human factor ruining an otherwise good photo.

I don't think so.

Alternatively if you just zoom in quite a bit on the image to include the opening only and your standing portraits you would have a good photograph as well.

Maybe, maybe not.
