Night Light

By katieb      
Cromer Pier
The original of this (taken last year) was taken with my Nikon coolpix 4300 and I just wanted to see if the D70 could do a better job - not sure I think the coolpix performed pretty well.

I love these Cromer Pier images of yours, Katie. Beautifully tidy composition, and quite exceptional light. I personally like the fact that the symmetry doesn't extend to the sky - it adds an attractive counterpoint to the orderliness of the rest of the image.

Edit : Just revisited your EC version, and I have to say, Katie, that this is even better - something I would not have thought possible.

Very pleasing to the eye - symmetry in the main subject, with the sky - of course - not symmetrical, and with subtle tones. Works for me!

great shot katie.
i love the warm subdued lighting on the planks.
i think the lights on makes this much better then it would be with them off.
lovely image.

I agree this is better than your EC, love the sky and the lights.
2 really minor points - the people on the LHS and the fact I think the lights are not dead central. These would niggle me if I were to put it on my wall - which I really would want to if it were mine, don't get me wrong.

I certainly hope they don't charge you for visiting the pier Katie, your shots of it are outstanding and this one is certainly no exception.

Thank you!
@ simon - I agree the people are a bit of a bummer everytime I thought the coast was clear somebody else would come along, I've got a portrait one without the bodies. As for the lights I thought I had them lined up when I took the shot but I was finding it difficult to see into the viewfinder due to the low level, got it wrong.

I have not been on the site much lately as the wonderful world of wedding photography takes up so much of my time these days. But I was having a quick look through the site tonight and came across your portfolio.
Wow simply stunning images!!!
I left Norfolk 3 years ago and now live in Wales (only just over the border) and I now miss the coast and good old Cromer and your images really brought back some great memories.
So thanks, and keep up the great work.
Best regards

Great shot Kate, I think I'll have to make a trip along to Cromer next time I'm on the Norfolk coast, lovely soft colours in the sky and plenty of lines for the composition.

Nice to meet you at the workshop, hope you got some good shots today.
