Last November I took a similar shot to this one that I promised to reshoot (though having looked at the previous one I'm not sure why), so here it is. Well, it's actually the opposite end of the pier, but they're pretty similar nonetheless.

On the whole, while I don't think this is as strong a shot as the previous two, I'm pleased with the way it turned out. I do have some reservations about my decision to go with a relatively restricted depth of field though. Specifically, was it a good idea to let the top of the structure drift out of focus or might it have been better to have used a smaller aperture? I don't know. On the whole I think it works, mostly, but I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.
