      Great work Joel. I'm very familiar with this pier as it is only a short drive from where I live. You captured and created a wonderful image. Very fine indeed.

      Thank you for viewing my stream last month and leaving some thoughtful comments, it's very much appreciated. You have inspired hundreds of photographers, including me, to venture into the LE world. I wish you the best in all of your photography endeavors.
