I'm not sure if this qualifies in the Landscape catergory but I just liked the striking contrast between the stillness of the rock solid concrete posts and the softness and movement of the water and clouds.

Beautiful shot. I'm actually quite amazed at the terrible advice Larus gave you. Don't listen to it!

I really like the light that fell just at the base of the wharf, and that 1 minute exposure is pretty cool too :)

well done

nicely done - the land in the distance seems a bit too bright for my liking tho...

Good clarity in the pillars. Nice capture of the background, although the sky is quite noisy. The water is interesting in the foreground, and maintains life in the background. Nice capture.

Pretty good, I do kindof feel though as I am looking down upon the pillars, wouldn´t a lower perspective have been better here, to have the pillars more lead the eye towards the backround?

I know, stupid comment but this is really nice, the light, the translucency of the water, the B & W. This image has such a "strength" about it...nicely done.

WOW I love the perspective. Dreamy water. Love the light/shadow play.

This has to score well. It it dramatic and I like the water movement at the bottom of the photo.

Great processing. Very nice photo.

Works for me...

Very appealing image. The black and white is great for this photograph, color would have taken away from the simple, yet striking tones throughout the image. Great photo.

I am a sucker for B/W photos. I like this one! I love the symmetry of the posts and play of the shadows on them. NICE!

Oooh... I've been looking forward to seeing this one full size, and I must say it only improves. Great job. The lighting, B&W, and contrast are perfect. 8

Good BW with very nice light highlghting on the posts but looks like the horizon is NOT level (looks to be rotated clockwise to the actual horizon and it APPEARS to have to much noise reduction applied in the foreground. (I could be wrong about noise reduction but that does not matter because in photography appearences are EVERYTHING)

Great shot!
