The fishing pier in Emerald Isle. I took this back in November, when my parents visited for Thanksgiving, and we spent an afternoon driving along the barrier island of Bogue Banks. For the most part the beach is actually not visible from the road, because of homes and dunes. But there are a few public fishing piers that allow you to walk out over the ocean for several hundred feet, as well as public town beaches and a state park.
In Black and White, and in color. I think I like the Black and White version better. What do you think?

I like the BW one as well. I found the same thing with a couple of my photos. Like the dog, the eye can focus on the dog rather than the quilt in the background.
A cool shot!
What a wonderful capture! I love it in both color and monochrome. The foggy background is awesome.
Lovely pier. Beautiful reflections in the wet sand. I like both .
Lovely photos! I like the black and white one best as well.
I like the tunnel effect of this composition. I usually really like black and white shots, but somehow the color one appeals to me more here. I don’t know that I can say why.
