    Seems abit 'empty' to me, like its missing a point of focus or something(?).

    I also think it might look a bit better with more depth of field - depending on the effect you want to have of course .

    The assignment is contextual landscape. I decided to take the course (I work at a Polytech so have access to just one course rather than the entire programme) earlier this year.

    In this instance, we (the class) chooses a landscape photographer and takes elements of their work as an influence. I chose Paul Raphaelson (does a lot of desolate, isolate landscapes as well as fusion of the organic and non-organic) and have taken the isolated and neglected influence from his works.

    I am trying to get across the desertedness influence I guess. Sorry for the late response but just got back home from work.

    I think you are on the right lines , probably need a more even contrast over the frame and he does look to use something like hyperfocal for total front to back sharpness.

    Looking him up, his stuff seems more urban and industrial decay. I like the image, but I agree with the others that the blur doesn't work for me. I think if you could back up and get a longer stretch of road. This kind of shot works in those long US desert roads that go forever into the distance.
