Great dramatic comp and the textures really suit the mono treatment. I like the brightness in the centre, very Dr Who-esque!

Superb toning and composition and as Al said brightening the centre of the focal point works a treat in adding to the eerie atmosphere, excellent again Smile

It's perfectly composed, and centered and it works a treat. The static grounded pier and building are such a great contrast to the clouds in the sky, which seem to be moving.

A nicely worked shot Derek, a good lead line in the boards that you've used so well and a great choice for the mono treatment, very moody!
