Bournemouth Pier early on a Saturday morning, early summer before the masses arrive! I couldn’t resist those lines on the sandy boardwalk.
I really like these structures mainly because people love them so much. They are quite difficult to make money from, and cost a lot of money to maintain. Without the love of the people I think many would just be shut down or knocked down. Even the rundown ones are left alone in the hope that someone will one day come along and save it. This pier has and is undergoing significant changes in order to squeeze some profit out of it…but it’s still there, and in many ways it is still going strong.
As far as processing goes, I added a curve preset in Pshop because I found the original colours a little distracting, the curve preset just evened out the differences a bit.
