Great lighting on #4. I really like the idea of #3 should have shot one like that with the same light as #4, cool pier!

Great set! I like the last two most, wonderful structure in those kind of piers, in tidal waters, I guess. We don't have tide here so all piers need to adjust just a slight variation of sea levels, cause mainly by wind.

Thanks Jimbo - The only concern I had while squating in the ocean was a big wave come up and hit the K10D !

Thanks Peter. I guess #3 is like a fisheye lens you either like it or not. I am sure that pier has been photographed 10,000 times that month alone - was going for a something a litlle different
