<<< o >>>Photo Friday: Ocean 11 comments + add yours

Having posted entries for the last 38 Photo Friday challenges I didn't want to miss one so have interrupted my guest posters, albeit only briefly. I took this yesterday evening, as we wandered along the beach with the kids. It isn't the most immediately relevant shot for this challenge – Ocean – not least because this is the Central Pier in Blackpool and the 'Ocean' you can see in this shot is the Irish Sea, but I am pleased with the way it turned out.

Right; back to the unpacking :-)

That's it - I can't post on Sunday -- this image is the most beautiful of your whole portfolio! -- Simply splendid -- the colors -- the reflection - the exposure -- the tones -- the symetry -- amazing... Get back to work, will you?! Let me focus on geting a decent shot! Jeez... :-)

this is excellent. i like the dim, mute colours and the reflection. and especially the expanse of space at the bottom of the picture. if you had cut that off and had it been more panoramic, it would have lost a certain effect. nice shot.

nariman and Emily: thanks.

For a moment I thought you were going to skip this week's challenge. I'm glad you didn't, because this shot is great. The tonality creates a wonderful mood, and that reflection is great. You have my vote.
