    The nuts 'n' bolts of Paignton Pier

    One of the cross braces holding the pier up. I tried a mono conversion but it lacked the rusty texture of this one.
    Incidentally, I cheated creating the bokeh as I didn't have a fast enough lens with me so just selected the background and reduced the sharpness

    Good pic John, that works for me. Your processing works well. Just the sort of pic that I’d take too

      Good shot John, I can't quite work out where you took it from - did you have your Wellies on!

        A very artistic image John with plenty of detail, I may be tempted to lift the shadows of the right side bolts to see a bit of detail in them.

            The sun was so low and bright that I was never going to lift the shadows and meaningful amount (I did try )

              I can never see a shot like the first, but I really like the uncropped version

                I'm with Alan regarding the uncropped version. I think I would have preferred the original if it had been sharp throughout.

                    Neat, though I can see where you haven't quite blurred the background. Worth another try with a wide aperture lens I reckon.

                      Yes, it was a bit sloppy so will do
