Forever Pier

Forever Pier

(Marc McCann) #1

I knew this abandoned pier existed on the Delaware River for some time, and I always imagined it would look best just like this: low light, fog, black and white, and void of fishermen. Patience paid off. I was aiming for a minimalist look of quiet loneliness.

Pertinent technical details or techniques to help others learn:

Composition: With a wide angle lens placed very close to the boardwalk, I tried to exaggerate the pier’s length and width while minimizing the mid-ground

Equipment: Nikon D810, Nikon 12-24 f/4. Manfrotto tripod, Hoya polarizing filter

I think you’ve nailed what you were aiming for, Marc - very much a minimalist image in formal terms and one which does evoke a sense of loneliness
