Twilight convergence

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 18 April 2013 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

The south pier in South Shields captured just before the sun went down over my left shoulder, it wasn't a particularly spectacular sunset that evening so I ignored it and concentrated on the quite pier instead.
Three hand held shots to make this HDR, the Fuji bridge camera fires them off in very rapid succession.

FinePix HS30EXR 1/35 second F/5.0 ISO 200 5 mm

The converging lines are the strong point, and I like the chromatic contrast blue/brown too.
I'm a bit perplexed about the sky which suffered from the PP.

CElliottUK from Reading, United Kingdom

Interestingly, the camera cracked the 3 shots off fast enough that you didn't end up with the waves not "Registering" as you recombined the shots

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

It looks to me that the sea attempts, without result, to conquer the pier! Was there any storm coming?
