Thank you very much everyone , for your kind comments. This shot did so much better than I expected. I was just hoping to get a 6.0 here. This is a wonderful pleasant surprise. My original intent was to capture the glow of the sunset sky on the water. I missing that 15min timeframe, but in the end the b/w has it's own charm. I had to crop squarish to keep the detail I wanted.

I thought my outtake would be more DPC friendly and was very close to swapping my final entered shot with this
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/25000-29999/29011/120/697095.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/25000-29999/29011/120/697095.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Great decision sticking with this shot. The outtake hasn't nearly as much impact. What you've done here is taken a busy scene and turned it into sea of tranquility. Magical. Congratulations for the blue!

Congratulations Techo! Beautiful image. Just joined up here today and thought I would broaden my horizons with some submissions here (time allowing) along with the CTF and CSLR challenges I'm used to.

Congrats on the ribbon. If they ever charged to view photos here you would be one of the few I would pony up the cash just to see what you came up with.

This is an awesome image. Not sure if you know who David Burdeny is, but this is a lot like his stuff (especially the old pier posts). Hope you do well.

Nice contrast between the old and new. Great shot

About as weathered as it gets! The fog really adds to the atmosphere of this scene, making the remnants seem even more ephemeral. The minimal subject and placid water also add to the solemn mood, almost reminiscent of a funeral for the past.

I really like this. I think it fits the theme perfectly. I would like it if the posts had a little more contrast to the water and sky.
