LeadINg linES

By U4eA
I've been meaning to try and capture the wonderful lead in lines offered by this (truthfully) less than wonderful pier for a while and finally managed it yesterday! Ths was shot at f16 for 1 second, converted to b&w with channel mixer in PS then selectively dodged and burned.

Your thoughts, comments or feedback are very welcome, especially in reference to the low angle/composition

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I was umm and erring over 'replacing' the lamp that was out but also dcided that it added to the image as whole. Smile

Looking at this and scrolling up and down so that the top of the image is hidden and wondering to myself is it better with or without the end of the middle structure.

In the end I have decided better with, as without it is like many more seen on here before Grin

The "out" lamp is a little distracting as it draws the eye, but in another way it positively breaks the symmetry. So it could work either way.

I think the lamp not working is OK, a little concerned that the border degrades the overall image, I think blak or white border may work better.
Still a cracking upload.

Thank you all for taking the time to comment. I guess the lamp could be one of those 'marmite' moments... Grin

I like marmite - and the lamp! The comp is great and it works so well as a mono - I like the distant couple too as they 'humanise' the image. Great shot, well taken and processed.

Version 2 added, where the border has been altered and the bulb changed. Wink

I like landscapes that are abstract photos, almost pure form. This does not follow the usual composition rules, and so it is more original.
Excellent shot - V2 for me

Caught my eye on Featured E2. I prefer it with the light out too. Great image..........Sandy
