Amazing colors. The angle really makes this shot.

I love the angle. Colors are a bit oversaturated for my taste, but I can see what you are trying to accomplish. Great job

How do you get the sun without the glare? Very well done - one of my top five for this challenge. Love the colors! If you're willing, could you add comments and maybe post the original?

Edit to add my thanks for sharing the info and the original!

The more I look at this shot (3rd visit) the more I like it. There has been talk in the forums recently about dpc 'colours' and imho this is an example of what they mean, I can easily see this sitting with a ribbon next to it. The angle used is inspired and I'm constantly drawn to the end of the pier then up to the sun down the rails and ready to start again with the left hand rails keeping me in the frame. The light on the floorboards is fantastic.

ok, am starting to ramble, good luck (bumping up 1)

I like the angle of this picture with the sun on one side and the blue sky on the other it really gives it a different perspective.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/27/2006 08:10:47 PM
This angle works briliantly. Awesome colors.

  Photographer found comment helpful.

This pier looks very familiar, I'll have to come back and see if it is who I think it is. The exposure is excellent and I like the lens tilt. Good luck on a great shot. 10
