More contrast would help this image. Nice idea.

Nice shot. It seems a touch soft on the pier. But I like it.

Nice composition. No "Wow".

Looks like an evening shot. I love how the water looks like sand. Nice job.

Contrast little low, but very nice shot!!!

Wow...I like this. The colours make it look so dismal, and that pier seems as if its going to tumble down any second now...

there is an eerie and mysterious sense to this image.

Very cool. Water looks like fog or some sort :)
06/21/2006 04:23:27 PM
Really unearthly looking! Great shot!
06/21/2006 02:37:44 PM
The softness of the water really plays up the depth of the pier. Almost doesn't look real!

Like the title and eerie hue and shadows add a lot to this one.
06/21/2006 11:07:22 AM
Nice textures and nice lots of stuff...

another pic for my at least to the top 20.

I am sorry but I don´t really get the thinking behind this image as it just doesn´t make sense to me compositionally. There is simply nothing in this image that I find interesting, there is simply nothing that draws my eye in and makes me want to linger over this. I realize you probably chose this place to photograph as there seem to be lights on the bridge wich I assume you didn´t want in the frame as they would be blown out but I would have strolled down the beach a small distance to the left and taken a shot of the pier from that vantage point, composing it similar to this shot -> ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/392/thumb/244395.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/392/thumb/244395.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

No offense intended but that is my honest opinion, ended giving it a 4.
