Nicely shot with good composition - A version without the left posts would have been interesting.
Cheers - Andy

I like the colour and tone of the image; I'm more divided about the lower third of the image. Yes, it adds movement and drama to an otherwise quite calm image, but the patterns and flow look too unnatural to me. I think I would be tempted to crop some of the foreground away, and drop the horizon which is too central for me.

On a more emotive level I do feel like I want to walk to the end of that pier and just pause and reflect on the seascape, so for me I'd see this as a calm image which draws me in and way from the hectic reality of life for a moment.

I wouldn't normally comment on a landscape photo but since I'm in this discussion group thingy I must say that I do like this one. The processing is nicely restrained and the composition is simple and effective. The lighting is subtle and calming and that contrasts with the slight drama of the foreground. I would find it impossible not to put a figure in this Smile first I thought the posts on the left were essential to the composition but now I think I'd prefer the shot without them.

lol Simon, i would have loved someone on a white horse but i think i would have struggled getting anyone to stand in the sea at 4-30 am apart from Yung and he was wearing wellington boots.-not a good look
thanks Phil

I can't offer any critique I'm afraid - it's beautiful. I like the splash of light in the bottom left corner.
