Welcome to ePz Elaine. Great to have you on-board.
A good first upload. Colourful - intriguing - and presumably part of one of the many piers in the NE.
It will benefit from a slight CW rotation, (I've put up a mod), but otherwise a great shot.
It's one of those that you can keep looking at and still find more; so a splendid composition.

Hi Elaine and welcome from me too.

I rather like these under-the-pier shots and as Jack has said, there's not much wrong with this one that a little straightening won't put right.

And personally, I'd also crop the plinth at the bottom while I was at it.

Good first upload though. I'll look forward to seeing some more.

Cheers,

Bren.

Welcome to EPZ, Elaine, and this is an interesting image with which to start your portfolio. The lines and repeats are good, and there is a lot of depth to the image. You held the exposure well, achieved good detail, and got some good light under the pier. I agree with the comments about the straightening and cropping the bottom, and have done a modification to show that, which includes a bit more cropping, but I also adjusted levels slightly in order to give a touch more contrast and to enhance the colours of the bits of rope attached to the framework.
Pamela.

Thanks guys for taking the time to look at my first upload - it's really appreciated, I was quite nervous as to the reaction I would get. The shot is of Central Pier in Blackpool. I was walking on the beach when the tide was out and was struck instantly by this view - it seemed to pull my eye in and down the length of the pier, and I liked the repeating patterns.
Unfortunately I didn't have a tripod with me, (lesson one learned - if possible take a tripod on photographic outings in future). The lighting was nice and warm.
I love the mods and can see how simple adjustments can improve a shot. I'll try similar adjustments if needed in my photo-editing software before I upload my next shot.
I'll give more information on the shot next time, and I've also updated my personal information on my portfolio page now.
Thanks for your help.

Elaine
