Sidmouth Breakwater

By apriorphoto      
Despite some uninspiring weather down in Devon last week I did manage to catch this beautiful sunrise at the waterfront of Sidmouth. Definitely worth getting up at 4:00am for!

For the technical lovers amongst you:

Yes it is always nice to get out of bed in the hope of catching that special sunrise, I like your above shot lovely exposure and in the main good composition, apart from the Pier leading you out of the photo. Yes I know in photography you got to use what is available, but just a shame that the pier was curving in the wrong direction.

Mike's comment above is interesting. What really works for me here is the sinuous snake-like curve of the breakwater, heading away as though it's avoiding the sun. Oh and the way that curve cuts across the curve of the waterline. That's the story for me. The sunrise and that subtle, understated glow in the sky are the important backdrop.

Both interesting points, I like mrswoolybill's interoperation of the photo that the breakwater is juxtapose to the curve of the sea and accentuates the changes in direction of the jetty. For technicalities sake ideally it should probably lead the other way but I think this wouldn't of shown the changes in the direction of the jetty as much. - Perhaps a tighter crop to the edge of the jetty would create a subtle arrow out of the jetty pointing you towards the sunrise?
