    I must be a really good rule breaker Dan lol 😉 I like the shot. I’m a way more mood/emotional driven photographer than I am technical. Great post!

    Excellent beautiful photograph: I like the mood suggested by the lonely runner heading off into the setting/rising sun.

    I like this image too, though I agree about the legs. Maybe you could burn them just a touch so they are a wee bit more apparent. Not too much! The darkness underscores how very early in the morning this was–though in Alaska I guess that depends on the time of year. 😛

  • Dan Bailey says:

    Larry, here’s a version of this shot where I did end up lightening the legs up just a little bit. How do you think it works? http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=433793492395&set=a.93933467395.98254.78763817395

    Dan,

    For me the ideal version would be just enhancing the rim light on the legs. I see there is already a bit of that in your first version. All of that black space also offers potential licensors the option of room for copy and such.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the comment, John. Yes, huge shadow areas do make for great ad copy!

    I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

    Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

    You have done it again! Another triumph.

    Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

    Thank you, Dan.
