Shoot this at Spencer Island in Everett Washington with a smc PENTAX-DA 50-200mm F4-5.6 ED that I have not used much till now. used Elements 11 and the Low Key filtering. Getting back to photography and looking to maybe getting a new Pentax camera here in the near future.

I chose this one first for its composition and the for its off center exposure.Black and white is very difficult to get right ,but i believe you have achieved it.
This was not easy to judge,

Definitively for me the composition is A+ and the grain in the wood just niles it with the converging lines theme
