Gone and Forgotten

A view from the Galveston shore mostly defined by what is not there. This seems to be a common fate for establishements built right on the water.

This is terrific! I love the metallic cast, the balance of dark and light, the arrangement of rotted pilings, the white dot on the horizon...

Defined by what's NOT there. I like that, Martin. I like the metallic cast, too.

The sea giveth and the sea taketh - old sailor's expression.

The colouring is excellent (except for the artifacts in the dark sky), but somehow the two dark lined up objects in front messes with composition.

Love the subtle differences in colour. I would be very worried if I lived in the houses on either side!
Beautiful capture. Great light and tones!

Superb photograph here, Martin. Great lighting and I like the two piers
Nothing like a bit of decay for catching my eye. The sickly light you have captured compliments the subject perfectly.

The sea will always win ;o)

The good news is...the sea if fighting and taking back lost ground; it would be nice if humankind thought twice before replacing what has deteriorated.
Excellent pic, too, Martin; the water is almost like liquid, heh! [grin]

the shine of the water in the foreground and the faded in the background is just so amazing, Martin. The subtle changes in colors and the tones...wow!

Love the steely blue but I find the white on the left a bit bright.
A nice monotone color cast. With the texture of the water, oh this is just soooo nice.

Your composition leads my eye to that little white speck on the horizon. These tones are rich and lovely.
