Such an innocuous place, a boating pool, made mysteriously huge and empty via your processing.
Like it.

superb composition Derek and the processing is sublime. Love the light hitting the steel pole and the reflection following the course of the concrete, can't fault it Smile

It is the geometry and the wonderfully calming feel that makes this image work so very well....

Thanks Chris. I did quite a bit of work on this to get it to what you see now. Mainly using curves adjustment layers, gradients and the dodge/burn tool. I have uploaded the RAW file image straight out of camera (reduced in size and saved as a jpeg for the web of course)

Very impressive. I love the long shadow of the sign leading along the edge of the pool.
Makes me want to revisit our own tidal pools in Guernsey.

You have done a grand job Derek! with the processing ,it was a gem before, but made it so much better, by the amount of effort you put into it .
well done Wink

I didn't know Margate could look so peaceful or so stunning. Very 1930's especially in black and white!
