Tyrol - MTB paradise!
by JTrojer, on Flickr

Any thoughts? Is this shot good enough to sell to the tourism office for their brochure?

G'day Johann,

I personally think that they will pass on purchasing the photograph, but you could present it to them and see where it leads.

Why do I think they will pass on it?

The dead tree stump on the left is the most dominant part of the photograph and the angle of view might not be wide enough to capture the whole vista, giving more of the feeling that you want to explore the scenery. Also the cyclists are leaving the scenery and would be better if they were entering the scene in the position of the tree stump.

You could analyse what they might want to see, and it would involve people going in to visit, the scenery that is inviting, possibly a vivid lake with mountain backdrop and a sky that gives the feeling of safety, meadows with wildflowers and time of day such as sunrise / sunset.

If you dropped past an information center, you could pickup a couple of brochures and analyse the photographs that are used and the content and how they make you feel and then you could replicate that in some of your own work and try again.

Hope it helps.

BTW. Nice scenery and well executed and PP, though the sky could possibly use a bit more contrast as it has the feel of being a bit washed out, but that will because of the angle of the sun and even time of day.

Regards,
Craig

Thanks Craig. Food for thought :-)
You just gave me a challenge for my vacation that starts next week. "The perfect brochure photo for Tyrol as a holiday destination..." I will try and replicate some of the photos an ad agency like Tirol Werbung uses.
Any suggestions on the best wide angle lens for a crop camera? The canon 10-22 ef-s lens maybe or should i try for a fischeye?

G'day Johann,

I personally would not recommend using a fisheye lens, purely because of the distortions and the impressions that it may imply. I'd recommend somewhere equivalent between 24mm - 35mm, also depending on the subject, you may like slightly wider, or even closer.

If you have people in the photograph, dont forget that you would need to get model releases signed from each person before any company will purchase your photograph with people that can be recognized in them.

Regards,
Craig
