Really nice processing here - and the lines almost drag you into the picture . .which doesn't seem to quite go anywhere.
But it still works !

Good shot

Great simplicity! I love the light and the amount of detail. Good thing putting the black framing.

9 - Wow. Beautiful pier, exquisitely captured. Love your nice straight lines. At first I wanted to see the sky hold some more interest, but I think it allows the pier to shine through. If anything, maybe a more horizontal crop/more width, but at this size you would likely lose too much. Changing anything about the crop/framing would just create 'another' (excellent) image.

Is it a private pier? One wonders how any such lovely place as this would go deserted for very long.

OK, let me see...it looks like you used Neat Image, or some noise reduction. It has really taken away the grain of the wood which would have really added interest. It would have been better to do a layer of noise reduction, then mask it so you only smoothe out the sky or whatever you want smoothe selectively...overall, it's nice, but is a little to 'fake smoothe' for me 6

Nice texture. Loose the black at the top and bottom.
