PDI - The Old Pier by Albert Boyle (7 marks)
Banbridge Camera Club
The colours in the sky here are amazing with the setting sun as they change from that pastel lavender to the hot yellows on the horizon.
This is a great time of the day to capture the old pier.
Unfortunately the tide does not always play into our hands to time a fantastic sunset with a high tide. As the tide is low in this image it exposes the seaweeds and small stones etc that do not add value to the image. A higher tide would have provided a fantastic reflection of light and paired with a long exposure a smooth silky water ethereal feel on the overall image.
This is definitely a location worth returning to when possible at a higher tide and fingers crossed a similar if not better sunset. - Matthew
