Wooden Pier

By Martin_D  
This photo was taken during sunset, it was around -5 + the wind chill factor, bloody cold!. We spent about an hour at this location waiting for people to come and go so as to make the jetty free to photograph without all the clutter. I used the 6 stop B+W filter to shorten the exposure length so the wait time did not exceed the dark hours. I decided to keep the sun out of the photo due to 2 reasons, 1 lens flare and 2 composition would have pushed it too far to the right of the frame (we arrived a little late in the day Sad )

Great shot and well done for getting out and taking the shot in such conditions. Well composed and fabulous colour. The light from the right hand side is a little distracting, but does not compromise a wonderful photo.

Thank you guys...

I know what you mean Jason, I think it adds to the tones of the image a little. We arrived a little late hence why the sun is out of frame, an hourly earlier would have been perfect..
