Some old posts that go out to sea in Langstone harbour, Hampshire.
Langstone Harbour is of international importance, for migrating birds it is a haven. Farlington Marshes, one of England's premier bird watching areas, attracts thousands of waders and wild fowl every year. Through the winter months 8,000 migrating Brent Geese settle here. Dunlin and Lapwing flock over the fields when high tide covers the mudflats.
To add some mood to the photo I have converted to sepia, adjusted the contrast a little, raised the colour saturation and added a frame.

well done! very nice color. the sepia was a nice touch here. nice frame too :0)

Whatever you did to it created a nice mood. It has a chocolate box feel I like. :) Great composition!

Great shot. The posts heading out to sea and the colors really set the mood.

I wish I could give more than a little smile!
Congratulation for such a perfect picture!

Amazing sky and water, Michael. Converting to sepia also adds to the drama, thanks for sharing.

Theses poles are placed my mens for the birds! What a great idea! We have to rebuild our plannet before building too much in expension!
The photo and mood is great! I'm currious... Is it possible it was during the end of the days and with sepia it give a very good illusion about sunset? I have the feeling it's a begin of sunset, I can do the opposite.. Including red influence would give the illusion is it latter when sun is low... Funny humm?
Great shot!

Wonderful composition Michael. Colors and details just great...

Excellent capture well done

Amazing image, lovely golden tones and warm lighting. Composition is excellent and the contrasting silhouettes of the poles with the sea and sky very impressive, well done.

Wow Paul, this is really beautiful! There's a great mood in your pic, lighting is amazing. Little waves gives a bit movement in this well-composed photo.

Hi Micahel,
Great shot with marvellous golden tones! Well composed and the diagonals created by the posts add dynamics... the way you capture the ripples on the sea makes this really beautiful, well done!
Pablo -

Very nice shot, with an exceptionnal color.
(but I don't know why, but the posts looks like unreal ?)

fantastic color and composition love you pp great job,

Cool PP work. The picture looks surreal. I like how some of the posts have red tint. It gives drama to the entire picture. Very good!!


Golden glow and golden rule. A very good combination of both. Good use of the field and use of the vanishing point of the pools. Nice sky and good frame work to.

Beautiful picture Michael, a very nice composition. The sky is amazing and the shadows of the poles on the water is very nice.
Best regards

Hi Michael

Wow! Superb graphism, sharpness & silhouettes, in this colorful sunset. Good work!

What else can I add? I'm just so impressed. I take it that this is hanging on someone's wall?

I've just discovered this beauty. What a lovely scene. The composition and colours are amazing. Well done.
