Not very imaginative, I know, but they just have to be done and I still like it.

I know 'great shot' isn't welcomed in this gallery, but it is! I have to confess to a bit of local knowledge here - I've spent many a happy hour hanging off the pier on the right end of a bit of string catching crabs - and this is where the critique comes in.

There's no one in it! Cromer pier is normally quite busy, but this photo doesn't reflect that. It's a cracking technical shot, great sky, lead in lines all there, but it's just crying out for some human interest to give it flavour and the imagination you say it lacks. Given the mood of the shot, which is fairly desolate, a sullen hoody leaning against the barrier would make it for me. Let me know if you want to borrow one - but don't expect much conversation! A single figure in the picture who reflects the mood of the shot (for example, a hoody or person of advanced years walking a dog or perhaps driving an electric scooter away from the camera), would accentuate the loneliness it conveys.

It must be done, and this one is done very well.

Thanks for the comments Saeid, Damien and Stuart.
I appreciate them.

I can see what you mean Damien.
I was concentrating on avoiding the groups of people and ended up with no-one, well not quite.
There was a fisherman in the distance on the right but he was small as to only be a distraction, so was cloned out.
I will check my other similar shots - nearly all with some people in - to suit your suggestion.
I don't remember any hoodies but I like the idea.
It's fair to say that with no people and the threatening sky it will not be a candidate for the Cromer Tourist Board photo of the year either.

Thanks Steve
