This is Banjo Pier in Swanage.

As the pier gives quite harsh lines against the wonderfully soft sky and sea, I added a little soft focus to try and ease that.

I deliberately haven't lightened the image in PS as I wanted to convey the light in its true state, I hope it works out that way.

What is light in its true state, Mark (discuss Tongue) An excellent sky with some lovely warm tones and I like that smidge of softness.

Glorious sky (interesting thought by Dave) and I like you softening effect on the pier.
How did you do selective soft focus?
The 'light stand' at end of pier takes you in to that lovely sky.

I like the thought that went into the alignment of the pier fencing's edges to the horizon, and the placing of the horizon on the lower third, the lead in created by the pier...the lighting. Everything about ths is great. Well done.
