    My brother has been at uni in brighton for over a year now. Since I only live about an hour away, I figured it was about time that I visited him. Here are a few photos from the trip.

    Looks like a great olace to shoot. Like number 1.

    I prefer the 2nd one. The tones are really great. seems like number 1 needs some levelling on the horizon.

    Great shots. I love the colours in the second one, and the composition of that one is great too. I didn't know Brighton Pier was back up and running!

    I love the second shot... I like shots with lots of negative space and this one rocks! It's a total reverse on how people would normally shoot a pier, with the whole thing in shot and a little bit of sea.... Brilliantly thought out!

    There are both strong compositionally. I really like the colors in the second.

    Exactly what I was going to say, except Alison words things so much better than I do. :)

    Wow from somebody who aspires to take great b&w, I love to see photos like your first.

    I also think the colours in #2 are amazing.



    IMO, a couple of beautys. :thumbsup:

    That first picture was shocking- the right amount of contrast, the perfect moody cloud setting, the pier's shadow on the water is foreboding, and the title "Brighton Pier" is well placed, perfectly lit, and contrasted beatifully against its dark buildings.

    This is an EXCELLENT shot, worthy of being framed.

    The only downside is the flock of birds- easily removed in GIMP or photoshop.
