Santa Monica Pier

Canon 7D, Raw, EF-S17-55mm, 55mm, f/14.0, 1/125, ISO 125, Nik

Well, here it is August 1. I have been neglectful of my blog and Willie is angry with me. I am going to try to redeem myself. To my followers, I apologize. Anyway, I participated in the 3rd Annual Scott Kelby PhotoWalk last Saturday. We were in Santa Monica for a couple of hours and I took a lot of photos. Here is the famous Santa Monica Pier as seen in many movies and TV shows.  I used my Nik Silver Efex software to convert to black and white and then I added a slight vignette. It is a very colorful photo, but I liked the black and white better. It was a gorgeous day there so I will add a few more so you can see the colors of the pier, the sky and the water. Here are the other photos if you want to see them all. Until tomorrow…

    I love the way you captured the classic nature of the pier without increasing the noise that often accompanies similar types of photos. This picture is beautiful and clear, but maintains a vintage feel.
