Under the Pier by Silver-Guild Under the Pier by Silver-Guild
Righty-o. This is the next up in the series of shots I took down at the beach the day before yesterday. With this one I actually took it with the intention of converting it to B&W when I got back. I also converted the original shot to HDR before turning it to black and white, and did a little bit of dodging and burning :D

I might be submitting the colour version of this at some point, but for now, this is all you've got ;)

I like the picture but I feel the composition is always a bit better when one of the distinct lines leaves the picture right in the corner ;)

As you placed this into the No Mercy folder that means you want a brutally honest Critique from #thephotographyunion

Great black and white. Nice perspective. But using HDR might have done you favor in a bad way..It seems a tad blurry..But if it's a fake HDR, done out of a single RAW file, then i guess it's the slower shutter speed that got you. But having the shutter speed even slower, would have createn a nice flowing feel to the water..So in my opinion you've taken it just at the wrong shutter speed, a tad faster..or slower...Also nice use of frames. I've seen a lot of misuse of frames lately, but this one is done good and suits well. It's a good capture so you should be pleased with it :)

Thanks for the feedback :)

It was actually done with 3 separate shots.

I was going for the flowing water look, but I couldn't manage to get the shutter speed slower, without blowing out the shot (I think I had the aperture wrong)

Thank you once again, appreciate your time :)

Lovely picture Rowena...great perspective and nice work with the conversion.

I like the reflection you've captured at the top which is in nice contrast to the choppy waves.
