it does look a bit like a person... reminds me of the salt formation in the shape of a lady (can't remember where, but its quite famous)..

good exposure.. but the composition is a bit centered.. i think this would have worked very well as part of a landscape.. so get your "rock man" off to one side and then let the rolling hillsides stretch out from there, i think that would have been a very pleasing image and one to attempt if you can get to this place sometime again..

does somewhat remind me of a man wearing a long robe with a hood, such as monks used to wear...

i agree with Dustin on this one... move a couple steps to the right, put the rock on th left side of the frame, and it'd look like a shepherd watching over the flock of sheep to the right. title it "stone shepherd", and you'd have a very nice composition...

Mr. Lot "Honey.... Don't look back!"

Mrs. Lot. "Don't tell me what I can't do... MEN !"

ZAP!

Mr. Lot." Whoa! That had to hurt."

Anyway... Dead center. You know...

PS: Sure does look like a person.

Yeah, this IS a really cool looking rock! I see a lady in nuzzling her face into something. I bet it would look awesome photographed at sunset!

Someone told me a trick for photographing lighthouses which I think would apply equally well here.

"Never ever photograph a lighthouse in a portrait format, always use landscape."

Without some context and a landscape to place them in they look like portraits of rocks.

Think of some of the famous Easter Island photos - can you remember any in portrait mode?

(On my monitor) I think I'd prefer to see a bit more saturation and contrast and maybe keep a bit more detail in the sky.
