Just a couple of people on the raised walkway at Bridlington harbour. Thought there was something in there isolation, the railings and the lamp post.
You will tell me.

Thoughtful concept and good submissive p.o.v
An idea might be to convert this to mono , and let the image speak for itself.
Both mods work. I left them near the center because they were looking out of the frame, but accept your point on crop.
Sorry for falling foul of rules, Frank - I'm a bit lazy with the exif and rarely bother with aperture/shutter speed as I know what I did at the time - not ideal for the critique section. I would almost certainly be on aperture priority and f7.1 - my usual to get a shallow depth of field and fast shutter speed - ISO probably 400.
Hello, Paul. I agree that there is something in the couple's isolation, as well as in their relaxed and comtemplative manner. Simple and effective, less is more. I felt a different composition might work, so I have done a modification where I straightened the verticals, cropped both sides and added canvas to the top, resulting in a square format. I thought the extra sky might add to the feeling of isolation. I was looking for a portrait/vertical format but couldn't crop any more from the left because the couple are looking out of the frame. Then I tried a different approach for my second modification, and turned the couple around, so that I could crop some more off the right. I'm sure there are boundless possibilities with this image.
Your second mod is very good. Shows how well Photozine works - I had thought of doing this, but decided it was too much trouble - you have achieved a seamless mod and it is very much better than my original.
Just shows how we can all learn something here.
I hope you don't mind Paul but I have also submitted a mod. I love the composition but there were two things that were taking my focus.
The first was the bar on the right, which I have removed, but also the underside of the underside of the bridge - it was highlighted just a little too much for me.
I also tweaked the levels a little bring a bit more colour into the shot and darkened the shadows on the bars just a little more - they are a nice shadow and shadows should not be wasted!
I don't mind any mods. We can all learn and I would not put my pictures up for comment unless I could take it. Thanks for your comments - both are valid and improve my original.
Just realised the mistake in my message above - I am sure you know know what I meant - one underside too many hehe! "but also the underside of the bridge"
