My first entry!

Taken on an early morning walk down the marine parade in Durban, South Africa. I took a few shots, but decided on this one as the waves give a better effect (I think!). I also converted into B&W.

They're all trying for the big one.

Nice use of lines here both on the vertical as well as the horizontal. Nicely timed with the splash of waves. The heads of the people are breaking the horizon just just and wonder what it would have done for the image to have dipped slightly lower..Just slightly.
One thing I would change in this shot is to increase the contrast on this shot. Tones are more grey and flat. Maybe that's what you were trying to stay with not sure. Great image none the less and portrayes life on the piers for fishermen well by using the simple comp rules.

I think this would have done better in colour

The symmetry in this image works quite well I think; the sea on the left side is a bit flat in contrast, could have done with a bit of burning in PP.
