    Excellent composition. I really like how the steps and the pier are towards the edges of the frame.

      Thank you. I’d been to this location previously but without a 28mm lens which just happened to be perfect for this composition. (I only have prime lenses!)


  2. Love your comp and perspective, it makes me stare at your image, impossible to leave it….. Wonderful!

      Thank you Marie. I was lucky to have the 28mm lens with me as it turned out to be the perfect focal length for this composition.

    I love the steps’ position too.
    One is first attracted by the horizon; then suddenly one falls down the stairs right into the water and starts the whole process again 🙂

    The stairs captivate me completely. Great job!

      Thank you. I really wanted a small boat tied up at the bottom to create a feeling of leaving but then I wouldn’t have been able to expose for so long. Glad you like it as it is.
