For today’s post we go back to Plum Island in Newburyport.  During the summer months, docks are attached to these pilings for the various tour boats, but in the offseason, these steel structures sit like sentinels guarding the beach.  The evening I took these shots was lacking in color, but I think this look actually benefitted the scene.  I tried it in both color and black and white, and can’t seem to pick a favorite.

    Nice Steven! I think the b/w processing works well here, it allows the pilings to stand without the distraction of even the faint tones in the original.

    Very cool! I think the B&W works really well here. It’s a great composition, well done.

    What a cool idea here Steven and you’ve nailed the execution! Awesome reflections, I think I’ll have to go with the B&W

    Very cool Steven. I’m going to go with the panel here and agree the B&W is my fav.
