[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Time marches on, wearing on everyone and everything. Not that I would want to, but one can't venture out on this old pier any more. Opulence on one side of the boardwalk, this on the other.

Slight crop, converted to B&W, Bumped-up contrast a bit, applied a cartoon filter to add some grittiness, applied an unsharp mask.

Hi Werner,
nice shot of this old structure left to decay and being battered by the elements, nice B&W post with good tone and contrast, a little under exposed for my eyes, I would have preferred to see a little more detail in the wood but that's just me...Nice composition using the bottom third of frame. What does the cartoon filter do? I have not came across that one before. Have a great day. Best wishes

Hi Werner.
Your relatively low POV creates a beauitful eye level effect with nice 2/3 framing,the B&W mood works and support your note,very good sharpness and well balanced exposure.
Best Wishes

like this one Werner very atmospheric image like the work the filter has done here
tfs regards bryan
