About the Image(s)

Yorkshire coast line. I was working on trying to explore black and white versions of old landscapes
(there is a competition with that category ) and this was my favorite outcome.

I see tonal variation and leading lines that point off to the upper right - perhaps an invitation to travel - but then
the pier appears and curves away in the other direction - a choice perhaps

Hi Gerard
I really like the texture in this image.

I find my eye is drawn up from the bottom then to the pier rather than to the upper right. This is good in my opinion because I see the main subject being the pier so my eye is not drawn away from it.

If you see the pier as being the main subject it may improve the image to be shifted to the left giving more breathing room on the left of the pier.

As well maybe darkening around the pier making it the brightest part of the image to make it stand out from the rest of the image. Right now it is the same tone as the rest of the image causing it to blend in too much.

It does have really cool texture and leading lines from the bottom making this an interesting image.
