Scale in Photography (St Louis Arch)

I follow Digital Photography School on Facebook and read their post the other day about How to Use the Human Form to Give a Sense of Scale to Your Images. I love the images that they use as examples. I love lines. It reminded me of this picture I took a couple years ago when we visited St Louis.

St Louis Arch – so tall!

I wasn’t even thinking about scale when I took the picture; I wanted to capture my family and the Arch. But it’s so cool to see it in that respect. The trees help give a sense of scale, too. My husband is just under 6 feet tall.

We visited on a weekday in April and it wasn’t crowded at all. Still, I was surprised that I was able to capture my family alone. This is one of those pictures that I really should print and hang on the wall. (Is anyone else as bad as I am about that?)

If you’re into photography, do you have any pictures that give a sense of scale like this? Link to them in the comments, please. I’d love to take a look!
