    I disagree that landscapes need people. But I like the images.

    Thank you for the look to my pictures and for your feedback.

    And don't worry : I have many landscapes without people !

    Maybe, like me, people thought they would be voting on whether landscapes need people and don't really want to vote on the quality of your gallery.

    Why don't you want to vote on the quality on the gallery ?

    I, for one, don't even have the time to go there and look at it in order to decide whether I like it or not.

    And no, landscapes as such don't need people, cityscapes, however, look more "alive" with people, and less like there had been a recent nuclear bomb attack which left all the buildings standing but the people are all "gone"...

    In the OP's defence, 'Landscapes need people' is just the title of this set, he is not trying to make an overall statement.
    I like your images, im sure you will improve further in time. :thumbup:

    It's not a personal thing and sometimes things sound more harsh in a forum (or email) than real life. To clarify the thought process, it went something like this:
    - scrolling through new post threads to find something interesting
    - oh, a poll: "landscapes need people" *click*
    - oh, I see. The poll is for a gallery that is found by linking to another site.
    - not what I thought *clicks on New Posts button*
    - *read message*, "You must wait 30 seconds between searches. Please wait 29 more seconds"

    On a separate note (and again, this is not as harsh as it might come across), if you want to improve your work, a poll won't tell you what you need to do better. For that matter, it won't tell you what you have done well either.

    I like your work quite a lot. Your work has a coherence that suggests that you have direction and your own clear vision. I am, therefore, puzzled about why you have posted this poll. Are you trying to find out about the members of the forum to see if this is the place for you?

    Good luck,
    Helen

    Hi Helen,

    Thank you for your post and your feedback. And yes, you're right : I know nothing about this forum and I'm curious to learn it.

    :confused:

    "Landscapes need people" is the title of his set. In the set itself, all the landscapes have people. Am I wrong in assuming that his opinion on landscape photography is that "landscapes need people"?
