In the past I have focused on landscape photography and still objects. I am trying to expand my skills and improve photographs of people as well. I used to get very angry when people got in my pictures. The. I read a blog that said that people quite often make a picture more interesting. On this ferry between Germany and Denmark, I was taking pictures of the vastness of the Baltic Sea. There were a lot of people on board and while I waited to get up to the rail, I noticed that this would make for a very interesting picture. You don’t want people in every shot, but it is true that people can make a shot much more interesting.
I particularly the composition of this picture. The woman in the chair on the bottom right almost looks like she was added in later or doesn’t belong somehow. I converted the picture to black and white because I found the colors distracting and the black and white put more focus on the composure.
