Until the 19th century Folkestone remained a small fishing community with a seafront that was continually battered by storms and encroaching shingle that made it hard to land boats. In 1807 an Act of Parliament was passed to build a pier and harbour which was built by Thomas Telford in 1809.
Folkestone is located where the southern edge of the North Downs, escarpment meets the sea.

A cleverly composed image captured under a sympathetic ambient light. The pool of water acts as a pointer toward the lighthouse, which makes an excellent focal point framed by the walls of the harbour. I like the warm tonal palette.

Well framed, interesting result. A composition well balanced between Fg and BG, nice golden tones.

Original and interesting POV, I guess it is an area of tides, very nice idea and execution

An unusual and creative viewpoint of the nicely framed lighthouse, with good foreground interest in the low-tide reflective puddles. The composition has a strong feeling of depth. I also like the subdued light.
