Beautiful composition with that striking brolly against that lovely old pier

15 Nov 2012 7:44am

@Doug: Thank you - The umbrella inspired me to take the shot.

Nigel from Avening, United Kingdom

You have all the ingredients here for a super BnW frame with a little selective colour on the umbrella, well done in any event.

15 Nov 2012 7:49am

@Nigel: A great idea - unfortunately I have no editing software that would do that. It does sound lovely tho.

thami from Fès, Morocco

Superbe rendu des couleurs et du jeu des lignes du pont sur pilotis rythmant la scène. Le jaune du parapluie nous renvoie à l'enseigne de même couleur.
Bonne journée lumineuse et chal-heureuse!

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

This all looks rather precarious . . would it/did it survive a storm ?

15 Nov 2012 12:00pm

@Ronnie 2¢: This is in Maine , not NJ where I live, so I think it weathered Sandy quite well. Many piers are constructed this way. See tomorrow's image for another view.

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

The pier off-season offers its best! I like the solitude of the construction with its holiday colours in the weird quietness...Only the family taking a walk tells us is peace over the world....

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Beautifully composed with colors that really "pop" in this shot! It's like a city up on piers here. I love that you allowed the pier to extend beyond the sides of the frame giving the illusion that the pier goes on for a significant distance.

15 Nov 2012 8:26pm

@Steven: Thank yo so much for finding thins to like in my image.
