Long Jetty at Long Jetty on the Central Coast of NSW. Much loved and much photographed. Not a spectacularly colourful sunset but pleasing all the same.

Hi Kathryn. An overture in blue. Moody, contemplative and a touch melancholic. regards. Klaudio.

I have visited this place many times when my daughter lived there.
I think the minimalistic approach adds to the charm of the picture.Not a spectacular sun sett as you say but I have seen many here.
T.F.S. and bringing back many memories.

Wow! What a moody landscape post! Perfectly composed and very well executed with great light and color management. Love it! Excellent work!
Have a nice Sunday!

I thought you'd given up on us! Love this. The unspectacular sunset has allowed the image to develop an all-over blue tint that is very subtle and pleasing.
The jetty seems to stretch to infinity - the hint is maybe in the name - and the little "side-shoot" is perfectly-placed to balance the satisfyingly thirdsy composition. Lovely work.

the mood is indeed serene in this image, a great combination of composition, colour and your creative judgement. great use of the long exposure to smooth out any roughness in the water. your positioning of the jetty is also excellent.

How wonderful that you are now back posting here - it's been over a year since we saw any of your lovely photographs! I hope that you are well.
Please don't make any apologies for the image lacking colour: for me it's just perfect and the colours and light are beautifully soft and your processing has been wonderfully subtle and sympathetic.
A very fine and pleasing composition with perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.
P.S. Over the last year, TE have greatly increased the size limits for pictures uploaded - both for pixel dimensions (now up to an amazing 3000 pixels high or wide) and a file size - now of up to around 5 Mb. This picture could certainly stand being seen at larger size and resolution and I think that would definitely add to its appeal. Just a thought, Kathryn.

Hello Kathryn - great to see you back! Beautiful shot to return with as well, with a pier that almost goes on forever and beautiful blue light. Thanks!

Nice to see you post! I hope you are well :)
And what a beauty too, the soft blues and delicate clouds indicate that this could be a dreamscape, with the wooden pier tempting us to go further and deeper into the scene. A very calming image, and with wonderful light.
Thanks for sharing!

I think the cold greyish blue colours are just fantastic - they add a lot of mood and atmosphere to your picture. Composition and POV are spot on with the end of the jetty ending pleasantly two thirds of the way in.

Appealing scene for the wood dock extending from foreground to horizon, with dramatic sunset clouds. Perhaps not colorful but details are the attraction.
Also reminds me that I almost drowned at the age of 3 on a fishing trip with my Dad, by falling off the wood dock into Lake Winneabago, Wisconsin. Fortunately way back then the Lake was clear and he saw me lying on the bottom and dove in for the rescue.
Thanks for sharing,

Beautiful composition with great perspective and nice pastel tones. I like it!

Nice linear perspective placed slightly off centre with great depth. Love the cool blue tone - very tranquil and serene - feels like a new day dawning.

non ci sono altre parole per descrivere quella che è una foto superlativa nella quale luce e composizione e colore concorrono ad un risultato straordinario.
D'altronde anche le tue foto precedenti non sono mai state banali e sempre frutto di una tecnica e di un gusto raffinato.
Ciao e buona settimana

you are presenting a wonderful impression of this famous jetty!
Excellent management of the difficult light and an outstanding perspective. The mood is very well conveyed and felt by the viewer. My compliments!

as my better half Gladys(Jadesgran) mentioned this is one of the places along the Central Coast that we loved to visit so this shot brings back warm and happy memories.
The sun set was less than colourful,however you have composed this shot so well that it doesn`t really matter,the extravagant depth works ever so well beneath an interesting evening sky.
Kindest regards Les.
