This really is a question of "horses for courses" as my Dad would have said. It has to come down to individual compositions. If you're going for the 'hotel room art' look (thanks Mark!) - and many people do love that stuff - then I think people are out.

However, I like to see the balance between people and the country in my own pictures.


Morella, Spain. August 2003.


Belgrade, Serbia. February 2004.

I guess I'm cheating really, as these pictures end up not being pure landscapes. More accurately they're pictures of people in their environment.

Cheers, Paul.
