I stood at the end of that pier one winter night when the waves were cresting within a foot of the deck! Cool to see it transplanted to the Caribbean Sea. What did you use to get the color effect?
Like something out of a turquoise and teal dream.
A Very very layered and textured image. You can keep on discovering new patterns and rhythms one after another. Great colors. The heavy weather has provided a wonderful soft lighting to bring out the details in the shadows.
Love it! really draws you into the shot, Great colours and an imagnative perspective.
Nice colors and nice composition. Attractive picture.
I have seen this type of shot many times, but this one has an interesting symmetry. The use of a much slower shutter speed would have enhanced the image a bit more I feel, giving the sea that smokey effect. Nevertheless it is a cracking example of this kind of shot.
I suspect a little saturation on this one,but this is a really good photograph; the geometry is excellent.
very good intorductio to the whole image. very nice colors and clarity.
The repetition, colors, textures, and details are wonderful!

I love it. To make something ordinary look extraordinary takes a good eye and a special effort.
I also like the symmetry and soft colors. For some reason, I can’t get out of my head the image of imaginary cows/cattle standing in line… must be the dark “hooves”

You’ve turned an ordinary subject into an extraordinary picture! Nice work!
This is beautiful. Wonderful colors and textures.
The fog blends the blues of sky and water into a dream-like atmosphere,
and the unique perspective of the pier creates a tunnel,
leading the dreamer into another world…
Absolutely amazing! I love the blue in the pillars. Almost looks like a patina.
I love this photo!!! It looks like a dream I had one time! It looks JUST like it! =D
OH MY GOSH! THIS IS STUNNING…..GREAT JOB!! EXCELLENT EYE!
The pic. is outstanding! It makes you feel like you are in a dream! When it is real! Absolutely amazing!
That is really cool.

Lovely muted colors intensify the mystery. This picture inspires the imagination and gives a moment of peace in a tumultuous world.
I wanna go there! Amazing!
Beautifully captured. This photograph has the painting like texture to it. Looks calming.
It drew me in. Had to buy it.
