    The main thing that I liked about this place was the look of the deforestation. There is something eerie about it. This was taken with an old Canon Digital Rebel. Yeah, the first one, before there was XT or XS.

    Thanks for the comments. After reading your critiques I do agree that it would have been a better photo sans the guy. Even more of the eerie thing goin on.

    Tree stumps in the shot would be a good representation of deforestation.

    I think it's just that your figure isn't doing much that is interesting. Had he been more involved in the environment, he would have served as a good focal point.

    dxqcanada made a good point. Wide angle, getting low and near the stumps, would have given you some good foreground interest, and with a narrow aperture, could have captured detail in the background, giving you the deforestation effect you were trying to achieve.
