kyricom: Does "human presence being very much a part of the photo" mean humans have to be in the shot, or do buildings etc. show human presence? ( 5 years and 1224 days ago )
Wayne Cheah: I would say it means "evidence" or "artifacts" of human presence, otherwise the well-worn phrase "humans allowed" would have been used? ( 5 years and 1224 days ago )
friiskiwi: Mark, people does not need to be in the photo, check the link from above;
