I think the light has gone just a bit too much on this one Tim. It is just a little bit flat. I like the composition, a Richard Standley like symmetry going on!
tim hitchins: cheers Bill yes it was just before the sun went down and i retired to the pubsmile cheers Bill.

Awesome. Love the way the pier draws your eye out. The depth of this photo is fabulous.

Thanks to Bill, I really like the symmetry here! But I also like the atmosphere created by the slightly blurred clouds.
Fine shot Tim.

I can see what Bill means about the light, but I really like how the pier looks.
tim hitchins: cheers Aussie yes it was very late just as the sun had gone down so maybe i could have done something in pp will have a looksmile
Another of those weird skies Tim! I think this is even more effective than your last, because the pier is so stationary.
tim hitchins: i think your quite right in your views on this Ian, most appreciatedsmile
Tim!!!!! I see skies like this and I let out a huge sigh..so beautiful. It's a lovely picture. But I do have one question..Is the Sky that beautiful and colorful and if it is what's up with the United States?
tim hitchins: lol Ada i dont know, yes the sky looked just this way as the sun was going down behind some hills to my right it was a lovely sight for sure and i am happy i have done the scene justice i feel.

As for the skys over your way i am sure they are just as beautiful just might have to look a wee bit harder for them smile cheers and have a good day my friend.

i see you've turned the slow shutter speed into your comfort zone smile
tim hitchins: lol well i am trying docsmile
I like the symmetry here - I'm looking forward to use my 10-20 mm after looking at your pics smile
tim hitchins: cheers Askel mate and i look forward to seeing the resultssmile
This is great, although I'm surprised you didnt change the wind to get the clouds rushing towards youwink
Which ND did you use?
tim hitchins: cheers Nigel it was the b&w ten stopper which i used, takes a bit of time as you cant see through it so focus/lock/screw on/press and keep fingers crossedsmile

A fabulously moody image, which draws you in towards the rnd of the pier.

A wonderful sky and symmetrical lines. It's a winner for me

A classic wide angle perspective very well executed.
tim hitchins: yes i bet this has been done sometimes on this pier for sure, really happy with your thought on it Martin.
Zoom, the first word that comes to mind with this excellently composed shot Tim. I do find the colours just a bit too muted though, just a touch of extra brightness in PS might have helped.
tim hitchins: yes Brian i shall have a look at thatsmile it was late in the day which probs contributed to the muted look but still happy with it, cheers Briansmile
A long view of peace and quiet, with rest stops to enjoy it. Very nice picture.
tim hitchins: yes Shiela the benches have added so much to the shot, in hindsight i should have put the timer on and gone and sat on onesmile

Love the detail in the pier and the sense of lapsed time with the clouds!

Splendid!! Not only have your last three pictures revealed the overwhelming beauty and serene atmosphere of this lake, the depth and movement of the clouds in the pictures, seem to spark a refreshing sense of enthusiasm and energy. Needless to say, it makes me want to go there.I admire your work and desire to expand your horizons.
tim hitchins: woah cathy i have been meaning to write but just seem so busy will make time tomorrow its the typing i am so slow at it grin your comment is very much appreciated and valued my friendsmile

Another great shot, Tim.
I like the atmosphere ...
tim hitchins: thanking you kindly Fabricesmile
Marvelous capture! Kinda, sorta surrealistic. I can feel the clouds skudding by.
tim hitchins: most appreciated Karima, and i like your perspective on it, cheers and have a nice daysmile
I really like the lighting here and the tones and the slight drag of the clouds and the sense of vacated space. My eye is distracted by the post to the right though and my mind wants it to be symmetrical but it isn't but that's me being pedantic! Have you tried a b&w conversion of this Tim?
tim hitchins: emailed with response Jose and cheerssmile
