An incoming tide wets the pebbles under the Palace Pier, as late afternoon November sunshine bathes the seaside resort of Brighton, in East Sussex, England.
I apologise for the necessity to watermark my images; I am trying to make it as discreet as possible.

sei tornato oggi in terra inglese con un ottimo scatto nel quale tutto concorre a pronosticare un ottimo successo.
Ottima la composizione con il pontile illuminato da una luce divina, un cielo da favole e colori impeccabili non possono che creare meraviglia. Nitidezza e bella saturazione aggiungono un ulteriore tocco di perfezione.
Ciao e buona giornata

Wha can I say? This is one of the most interesting photos today on the TE. And one of my favorite photos. My congratulations, Brian!

Great depth result with this presentation, well manangde, I like the lwarm light and the golden reflections on the pier.
chrislo (4155) 2013-04-04 4:17
A very creative composition with fantastic perspective. I like how the wall starts in the far right corner of the frame and leads the eye further into the image. The vertical frame adds to the impressive depth, and your excellent light management has produced an outstanding capture. A fantastic image flawlessly executed.
dkmurphys (57033) 2013-04-04 4:52
Very attractive POV. I like the lines of this composition and the textures. Perfect work!

Despite the fact that you have been blessed (or cursed) with worse weather than we have and that you've not ventured out with your camera for some time, you clearly still have some wonderful photographs in your archive to enthrall us!
Another splendid photograph of your beloved Brighton Pier with excellent and pleasing composition and lovely colours and light. The details and sharpness are exquisite and I particularly like the bright light on the water beneath the pier too which really enhances the picture beautifully.

Avec la vague d'écume blanche qui tapisse le sable quelle vue sur ce ponton quelle perspective et profondeur d'image et cadrage grandisoe.

A nice long double perspective with the wall and the pier
Amazing that you post an image of Brighton as I'm presently reading " Looking good dead" a thriller by Peter James !!
Have a nice day, I return to my reading asap

Wonderful light on the pier and beautiful colours of those pebbles in the shadow.
The lines of clouds make an excellent backdrop.
Very good DOF.
Best regards, Paul

carlo62 (45840) 2013-04-04 13:48
una bellissima serie di diagonali che conducono al centro dell'immagine, dove si uniscono per farci ammirare il bel cielo.
Splendida luce d ottima qualità fotografica.
jjcordier (79297) 2013-04-04 22:18
Cette jetée est une source de photos inépuisable pour toi! Superbe photo avec une lumière absolument fantastique, une bonne compo et un bon travail de PP pour atténuer les ombres.
Kamilutka (8105) 2013-04-05 1:03
all the pebbles are so colorful - no wonder they caught your attention - they look like a giant heap of M&Ms :-) Very beautiful light and great warm colors. The POV seems to be just the best for this scene.
artesia (959) 2013-04-05 6:49
The pier perfectly lit but the the sunshine...
The photo shows you really care about capturing the scene, well thought about the foreground, the wall on the right made such a great depth...
What a lovely lovely scene..
Cricri (117315) 2013-04-05 11:31
Excellente présentation, perspective,lumière, des détails et des couleurs bien rendue, superbe scéne du ciel, magnifique
ACL1978 (7511) 2013-04-05 19:41
Awesome POV, Brian - following both the pier and the retaining wall here. The late sun on the pier itself is just beautiful, and add in the fading blue sky for a perfect late afternoon tone. It's the water, I think, that really pulls this one together, though - you captured it at the right moment, white and frothy, advancing over the colorful pebbles of the beach toward the camera. Nice one!
Robert1969 (7160) 2013-04-06 1:52
I like the point of view: the diagonal lines of
the pier and the wall creates a lots of depth
and the wall makes the picture extra exciting.
The vertical position emphaszie extra the depth.
Light management and composition are also
brianmcc (6219) 2013-04-06 3:05
wow what wonderful light and you have cpatured it supebly in this image. your viewpoint is excellent to produce this striking image and dynamic perspective. you have used the wall very well to lead on to the image and take the viewer further into the image. stunning light illuminating the pier.
ChrisJ (111632) 2013-04-06 5:07
Smart choice of a vertical format with impeccable sharpness and wonderful warm cold colour contrasts between the orange tinted clouds and blue sky. Good perspective and lead in lines with the dual pier and stone wall at right. Tfs!
