    Thanks guys!

    I took some that I plan to not do the HDR thing to. But...since I'm still new to it...I just can't help myself. :-D

    Usually I don't like highly processed HDR shots but this is really cool. The sky is amazing - the contrails and cloud patterns are really dramatic. And I like the sharpness of the textures on the pier itself, the sand, the water. And the desaturated colors are subtle but pleasing - very grungy. Definitely commercial-quality work.

    The only thing I would have done is cropped a bit lower so that there would be a little bit of sand under the left-most support of the pier to frame the subject a bit.

    Thanks Chris!

    Now that you point it out....I agree about the crop. But, this is the whole shot. I'm now wishing I had framed it a touch downward to give a little more sand and a touch less sky.
