"I did not choose this for any other reason than it jumped out at me and grabbed my attention. It is an excellent photo in it's technicality and in it's composition. I like the way my eye was immediately guided to the very depth of the picture and I could still see the very clear details of the pier in the distance. I just love the misty effect of the slow shutter speed on the water." - Ray
