Do People in Landscape Photographs Diminish Their Value?

Do they add impact, focus and meaning, or distract, undermine and erode the stories? The photographer chooses but it’s someone else that decides.

Take a look at the following two pictures. One is a peaceful, early morning woodland scene from Kings Wood, Challock, Kent. The other is a quiet, late afternoon, tide-out seascape from Camber Sands, East Sussex.
