Challenging shot! To me, the interest resides in the intricate geometrical details of the pier. Unfortunately it receives less attention then the walkway where colour and details seem just right. You are right, the difficulty also resides in the background. If you follow the jetty with the eyes, it ends up in a jumble of details that catch the grey indefinite background. The day may have been drab, but still the geometric motifs of sand and water are visible and lend interest to the jetty details. This being the case, I would say less foreground and a greater focus on the surrounding sand an water to bring out the unusual details of this composition. Cheers,
Paul

Thank you for your comments,which I find helpful and constructive.I have taken this on board and will,in future,remember to pay more heed to the background than I did with this one.
