Isla Pier

Pier taken near Cancun Mexico recently during evening time. Liked the lighting and the milky like sea compounded by a long exposure around 15 seconds.

Superb, but I wouldn't feel too steady on the pier, at risk of falling off the edge of the world.

This has to be one of the best images I have seen, its certainly got that wow factor. Its like two worlds from the dark blue tones to the firey red. You could call it the path way to heaven or hell, just for the colours. Love it.

You are developing into an awesome photographer. Your composition is exquisite and the manner in which you approach your chosen subjects is highly original.
You manage to aviod cliche and achieve results that are quite simply remarkable. Have you sold your soul to the Devil? How you have not received an editors choice beggers belief!
