Sopot is a seaside town in Eastern Pomerania on the southern coast of the Baltic Sea in northern Poland, with a population of approximately 40,000.
Sopot is a city with powiat (county) status, in the Pomeranian Voivodeship. Until 1999 it was part of the Gdańsk Voivodeship. It lies between the larger cities of Gdansk to the southeast and Gdynia to the northwest. The three cities together make up the metropolitan agglomeration of the Trójmiasto (Tri-City).
Sopot is a major health-spa and tourist resort destination. It has the longest wooden pier in Europe, at 515.5 metres, stretching out into the Bay of Gdańsk. The city is also famous for its Sopot International Song Festival, the largest such event in Europe after the Eurovision Song Contest. Among its other attractions is a fountain of bromide spring water, known as the "inhalation mushroom".

Masterful picture of the marina. Great atmosphere with superb colours and sharpness! I liked the wide expanse of water in the fg and the light. Excellent presentation and thanks for sharing.

A splendid dramatic light for this well balanced composition. Perfectly exposed with excellent colours and clarity. Well chosen point of view to encompass the graphism offered by the pier.

The light is magnificent, picking up excellent detail. I love the cloudy and rather threatening sky, and the colours in this image.
Very well done.
Kind Regards, Ann

You are getting good DOF and clarity throughout and what an interesting coastal scape with beautiful dark grey sky to add to the atmosphere as a wining combination. The mid foreground creates such a lovely contrast and lovely crunchy detail throughout. This is a very accomplished and attractive shot seamlessly done, Congrats.
