I think the triangle created by the three pillars creates a very good composition. I like the shutter speed you have chosen that creates the swirl (?) in the water. I think the sun top left balances the heaviest pillar bottom right perfectly.
I think the cropping is perfect, and the light on the horisontal wood is sthe cherry on the cake.
I do not think this needs any improvement but an alternative could be to try and get some more drama in the skies top right.

... your memory gets worse Martin, you need to buy a camera that can tag your shots with a GPS location Wink

Certainly isn't Southport if that helps Grin

I think you've created a beautiful image, the composition suits the square crop.

Fantastic, tight composition, Martin, and some precious light reflecting off that wood. They don't come much better than this.

Yes, it is the light on that cross member that really makes this extra special.
Just stunning.

I'm not sure I can really describe why but it certainly has a lot more about it than the typical posts-in-the-sea-at-sunset shot. I'm pretty sure it's something about comp rather than light for me but it's too much in my subconscious to articulate I'm afraid Smile
