[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Busselton Jetty is the longest wooden jetty (pier) in the southern hemisphere,stretching almost 2 km out to sea from the town of Busselton, Western Australia.
The jetty construction commenced in 1853 and the first section was opened in 1865. The jetty was extended numerous times until the 1960s, ultimately reaching a length of 1841 m. The last commercial vessel called at the jetty in 1971 and the jetty was closed the following year. It passed into the control of Busselton Shire and has been gradually restored and improved since

The b&w works well, good choice.
Appealing pov, very nice perspective, I like the use of lines.
Perhaps a cropping on the right side seemed to be an interesting alternative.

Hi Barry

Good choice of black and white, good composition and an abundance of lead in lines. That post on the extreme right annoys me. i wonder if a step to the left could have avoided this? A good shot still.

Hi Barry,
Well nothing more to add as to what has already been said... a good choice of monochrome and well composed.
