Very nice. #2 and #4 are the best looking for me. I'd say #2 was my favourite but it has that "two shots in one" thing and I find it a bit distracting that there is so much great stuff going on. Still a lovely shot though -love both sand (and little figures) and the sky.

Amazing! All of them great 1 & 2 are my favorite, followed very closely by 4 & 5. Color and POV are incredible.

Nice set of pics. Form me #1 is my favourite. And I'm giving myself a question: where is this guy's home? Which direction to go? TFS

Hi Tony,

A slightly eclectic but very interesting set here. I love the isolation that comes across in the first - I suspect he's only a few yards out but could be miles from this perspective!

The three pier images all work well in their respective ways; #2 has great placement of the figures in just a perfect location between the pier legs, with a fabulous sky and reflection to add to the whole scene, whereas #4 has a great lead-in along the pier (in the Western 'reading from left to right' manner) along with a nicely handled focus point of the three lamps just off the centre of the image. The shot in #5 is, perhaps, slightly weaker than the other two but is 'saved' by the appearing sun in the shot warming up the sky on the horizon and being picked up by the slight texture in the foreground sea.

Finally, #3 is well seen and my only 'gripe' is the headlight in the approaching car which acts as a grab point for the eye; it's great pity is that it is right on the edge of the frame and whilst you could crop it, you'd also loose the head and shoulders of the figure on that side as well which I feel you need to balance out the pair on the left... Those two, the left hand figure and the mascot (?) sitting on the roof make for a nice triangulation of figures in the image though.

Thanks for sharing these - and it would be interesting to see what you would come up with is photography were to be your primary pursuit on vacation!

Best regards, Neil.

Thanks all for the comments!

The guy was maybe a couple hundred yards (or a couple hundred meters) out, pretty far but not that far. The pier itself is around 300 meters long. As you say, perspective.

Numbers 2 & 4 do it for me as well, especially 2. I was just there a few weeks ago for their street fair. $10 to walk down the street and look at vendor stuff. I always enjoy the pier.

The Folly Beach Pier is one of my all-time favorite Atlantic coast piers and I have been to a lot of them. Glad to see it's still doing ok after the recent hurricane. It's a wonderful wood (not concrete) structure and you have depicted it nicely here.

I've been to Folly Beach a couple of times myself and shot that very pier as well.
I like #2 and #4.
#1 is very interesting in its minimalizm and blue tones.
Nice set. TFS.
