    A large wall mural outside a restaurant in Granada. I waited for the man to get in a perfect position where the text on the sign showed, but he was still off center for compositional value.

    Midday shot as can be seen by the totally blown out sidewalk where my watermark is. Only about 3 feet of shade under the overhang to keep the wall and man in perfect lighting (sun caught a little bit of his body, but not bad).

    Olympus E-PL1 w/ 14-42 kit lens @ 25mm : f4.5 @ 1/500'th : 250 ISO (Shutter Priority Mode)

    I think that this shot below, taken just seconds before the man entered the scene (you can see a bit of his hand on the left side) - - - shows how much impact human content can have on a scenic view - - - at least from my point of view, seeing side by side captures - having the the human element or not, makes it or breaks it.
