Brighton Sunset by Andrew-and-Seven Brighton Sunset by Andrew-and-Seven
Taken 30mins or so later from the bird on the boat shot (what did I call it again :-S ) is this one of the old Brighton Pier. Now a wreck it has become a bit of a photography cliche. The birds roost there and so getting a flock of them over the pier requires little forward planning or luck.

EOS10D Sigma 70-200f2.8 at 70mm 1/250th f6.3 -0.7

Very melancholy feel to this picture, the colors are brilliant, you've managed to capture a typical Brighton sunset perfectly!

Wonderful. I would normally oppose a central horizon but here it works well and is balanced nicely by the detail of the sea and the seagulls flying overhead. :)

Cliches are usually cliche for a reason... This is a wonderful photo.

THanks Eagle, I know but still, can't help feeling that somewhere someone has taken the same shot already.

Not the exact same shot! I'm sure the birds weren't in the exact same place :D

No seriously, it's always good to find something unique and new, but there's not a thing wrong with shooting the same things others have found beautiful before... or even something you yourself have shot before. Unique subject material is hard to find... especially if you're trying to find subjects that no one has photographed before.

Aye true enough. And frankly who knows if someone has shot a scene in front of you before anyway?

I clearly don't have enough to worry about in my life hehe!

This photo is breath taking. I know for sure that when I upgrade to an SLR I will be visiting this location as it is close to where I live.

Superb shot and thanks for sharing :clap:

Beautiful. The action of the flock, the two silhouetted birds at the top to add some perspective, the skeletal pier, the sunsetting behind it and its reflection on the water. I love all these componants in the photo! Wow!

Thats a beauty of a shot mate, i didnt know you were from brighton? :D

Even if it is a little cliché it's still a cracking shot, sun is in a perfect position and the birds just add to it.

hehe no I'm not from Brighton, but I was in Peacehaven and thought about the sunset options. My friend (Enigma - see gallery) was a bit bored with possibilities from PH so the pier idea came up so off we went. She missed the sunset after all as she was trying to find a loo !! Women eh? LoL LoL

Glad you like it :)
