Default Port Jefferson in B&W

Just a couple of my pictures from my trip to my local port today.

I particularly like the first one (though I'm generally not a fan of B&W). The perspective (converging lines) of the jetty / pier and the mix of horizontals (boards) and verticals (light poles, masts, etc) - really mix well.

My thought for any improvement would be, to possibly crop off a bit of the sky in the first photo for an more balanced emphasis on foreground.

The other two photos seem to lack the strong subject matter of the first photo. That is just my humble opinion, anyway.

Well done & thanks for sharing.

Paul

Thanks! Yeah, the last two weren't as good. The second one, with the stairs, was intended to be the main subject. The last one I just personally liked the circular pier I was standing on.

I like #1 best. I don't think the last two "weren't as good". I think the B&W treatment made them more interesting.
