Winter on the boardwalk
Lens: Pentax 50mm f1.7 Camera: Pentax K-500 Photo Location: Coney Island, Brooklyn ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/800s Aperture: F1.7 

Shot on a recent bike outing to Coney Island. I miss the summer, but there's something about being on the boardwalk in cold weather that really makes me feel like a New Yorker.

What could I have done to make it better?

Nice, but I would trim some of the foreground left half-circle which competes too heavily with the more interesting right part. I had a try, but there might be better options. It is now in 4:3 format.

I have never been to Coney Island and I do like this shot. Something unmistakably 'Coney Island' out of focus in the far distance could have added some 'identity' to the shot. Love the soft curves of the armrests against the fence rails.

Nice idea! I'll try that the next time I go there.
