At one time Southport pier used to be open into the evening; people would wander along and enjoy watching the sun setting and the lights coming on in the buildings.

Then they spent some money on it and bought a new tram fitted with an annoying beep which goes off permanently when there is any danger the thing is going to move.

Now they lock the gates in the evening, presumably for reasons of health and safety. No pleasure is allowed after 7 on this pleasure pier.

This shot was taken on an evening which had seen a cloudless blue sky gradually turn golden. I've tweaked the contrast and that is about it.

I shot it to convert to b&w, then decided I like the tones too much.

Thanks for looking, hope you like it, all feedback welcome.

Very good composition. I like the bright reflections and that golden section of paving on the left.

I know it's such a shame that we can't wander down there after 7, a coffee & play on the penny arcade.

Frustrating as I'm sure there are plenty more images available with the light at that time of day.
It does appear to have the right ingredients for a mono conversion with all the shapes and tones but you're right to keep it in colour here.

I'd be inclined to crop it ever so slightly on the left, but apart from that it works well for me. And I agree that keeping the colour was a good idea.

Gorgeous golden tones and strong silhouettes. Love the repetitive curves with the lamps in the middle. Flipping health & safety...you've done well despite their best efforts!

Thanks very much everybody.

Conrad yes I know what you mean. I have cropped quite a bit off the left but was worried about losing the composition in an effort to get rid of messy bits.
