I took these shots yesterday at Sharpness docks on the river Severn when the tide was out.

Entrance to the docks:

I like #2. What did you use to do the B&W conversion?

I think it is a bit of an optical illusion as if you look at the railings and the lamp post they are all vertical. I spent a while looking at that when I was processing it.

Thanks everyone. I posted these in September so wasn't expecting more feedback.

The lens flare in the last one was not deliberate. I was shooting towards the sun and had try and position myself to avoid too much of it. I like the way it came out though.

Number 2 gots my heart. It's sharp, distinct, and whole. There's nothing to complain about. It just works.
