I also like the shadow and composition, but the scene is so serene, I think I would like it better without you or maybe if you were off to the side a bit.

Love it. Has a nice lonely mood with you in the photo and I love the shadow. Beautiful shot with or without you but tells a totally different story with you in the shot and that's what I like best about it.

Definitely with you in it. Really adds the feel of one-ness with the universe.

I just got back from a great weekend up in Whistler. I took this photo Friday night at Lost Lake. The moon was two thirds full but it was totally clear so the moonlight really lit up the lake.

I normally do not include people in my landscape photos but decided to pose in this one. What do you think? Do you think it is better with me in the photo or if I stayed out of the way?
