Looks like a surrealist painting...colors compliment the bridge, help it to stand out in sharp contrast to the sea...hope to see this in a gallery someday...

Great colour and perspective. My only comment would be it looks slightly soft on the pier detail itself and could maybe do with some sharpening. But it still deserves the awared in ym eyes.

Behind The Lens

Location
Gasparilla Island State Park in Boca Grande, Florida
Time
Early Morning, Sunrise
Lighting
This image was a 30 second exposure to capture all the natural lighting.
Equipment
Camera: Nikon D90 Lens: Nikkor 24-70mm 2.8 Tripod: Slik Pro w/ Ball Head Wired Trigger
Inspiration
As I was walking back from my original location, I noticed the morning sunlight reflecting off the water and old pier. The colors, shapes and leading lines just drew me in to the view and I had to capture this moment.
Editing
After basic post-processing of brightness, contrast and such, I applied an HDR preset from Lightroom to the image and then fine tuned the rest of the settings to where I felt it looked best.
In my camera bag
Camera: Nikon D90 Lens 1: Nikkor 24-70mm 2.8 Lens 2: Nikkor 55-300mm 3.5-5.6 VR Lens 3: Nikkor 50mm 1.2 Lens 4: Nikkor 18-55 3.5 - 5.6 VR Flash: Nikon Speedlight 800 Generic Wired Remote & Wireless Remote Various Filters
Feedback
Be prepared for anything. I had no intention of capturing this image, but when I saw it, I had to have it. It was cold out and I waded out in the chilly, rough waters to get the right framing.
