Super tones give this one an out-of-world mystical quality

Gorgeously decayed relic of a mind-set that felt life would be better for travellers if their time in a boat was made shorter by building long jetties.

"Tranquility" is a concept that come to mind when gazing on this masterpiece, mal. Your clever camera has lulled the water and clouds...even the rust is taking its own sweet time....

More of a monster, a dragon that slides into the depth of breathless water.

The curved bridge builds a perfect disharmony to the smooooth, calm, structureless water: texture, curvature, harsh, sharp. I love the photo!

I wonder how the shot would have looked from a slightly lower (or higher) position. Right now, the water-horizon mixes with the upper end of the bridge. Hmm...

Great composition - I love the area of emptiness on the right. The sea looks like a mirror - it's quite unnerving. There's a feeling that something is just about to happen.
Superb composition. The wonderful unreality of the water which looks like liquid metal.

Mal, did I read the EXIF data correct? The shutter was open for almost 3 minutes? Wow, any guidance as to post production - please!
I know you want to try other things Mal, but these are just stunning! Likeyed

Such an end time atmosphere again- no boat, no human being, no bird, no sound... absolute stilte and loneliness , nobody will ever arrive.. - only we viewers are present for moments and at some distance, some minutes later we have left this desolated place too where living isn't possible- the unreality is fascinating indeed, cruel- beautiful! Photography as art creating a new level/kind of reality! What may be so attractive for you to create such pictures of loneliness and abandonment again and again? They make me so sad!

Superb shot, Mal, with great use of the angle & the foreground railing-uprights.
What I can say, Mal? I like your photos!

The serpent has a head like a locomotive. Oi, the sea would ever be so smooth over here, where we only have gut emptying swells.

Excellent picture of this extremely tame serpent.
