    Took this the other night while on a walk, taken with my 10-20mm, D300, with a little bump up in contrast/tones.

    Nice shot
    Would be nicer if it was more centered.

    The old dock really stands out, as if superimposed. Almost unreal.

    Great shot! Awesome contrast throughout the shot.

    Did you align the shot to end of the dock? The opposite side beach is tilted. You might want to try aligning it to that white strip.

    Interesting shot! I would try a lower angle on this shot, where the dock would be the only focal point. Maybe the hand rail support boards could frame the shot. Then, by focusing on the broken board, you could have excellent DOF and eliminate the off center and beach issues.

    nice shot, good perspective and the tones work well....agree a lower angle would be worth trying. Also the increase in contrast has left a halo around the top part of the jetty and the centre section of the trees.
