Hi Guys,

This is Princes Pier in Port Melbourne (Vic, Australia). Construction of the pier was completed in 1915 and until the late 1960s it served as one of the major entry points into Melbourne for new migrants arriving by ship. The pier was eventually closed in 1990 and in the subsequent years a series of fires damaged the pier and several structures built on it. Then in 2006 restoration work was commenced with the first 200 odd metres of decking being restored and the remaining 400 metres of wooden pylons being preserved.

The night that I was there it was absolutely buzzing with people, they were fishing, there were kids on bikes, a couple of dogs running around, and of course several people trying to take photos. I ended up having to tightly frame the shot so I didn't get fishing rods and people in the edges of the frame. While I was there I was chatting to a guy with a Nikon D800 who ended up not hanging around as thought that the nights sunset was going to be pretty average. I decided to stick it out and try my luck and I'm glad I did!
nominate this picture,
