  1. Infinite! Mesmerizing… terrific shot !!

  2. Fabulous shot Jane!!! monochrome creates such a mystery…..just love it!!!

  3. Santa Monica Pier is the best for shots under the pier…. great capture!

  4. Lovely shot, Jane. Are you thinking about getting the T-3? I’m sticking with the T-2! Thinking about buying the 10-24 mm zoom lens, though. 🙂

    • Thanks, Patti. I love this pier. 🙂
      Of course, I am tempted but very happy with the X-T2 for now. The 10-24mm would be a great addition to your arsenal. I am looking at the 16-55 f/2.8. I miss having a fixed aperture zoom. Problem is, the weight. Loving my prime f/2 lenses.

  5. Beautiful. May I ask why you choose black and white for this shot?

  6. I love this photo! The nearest wave has the texture of a bitten cookie, proving it’s deliciousness! And the splashing of further waves is well captured! The tones, and shadow to light balance is aesthetically pleasing…

  7. What I really like about this image is the perspective created by the rows of never-ending pillars. They just slowly vanish into the back, And then the waves breaking through this perspective. Beautifully captured and processed.

    • Hi Otto, It’s my latest creative challenge when I’m in Santa Monica. It’s a bit like a house of mirrors finding the rhythm of the waves and positioning the pilings. I am definitely in the flow under here. 😉 Thanks so much for your appreciation.

  8. Canny decide if I like the verticals best or the water splashes – they are so clear I can almost feel that salty mix

  9. So you submitted this photo of a pier to your peers at Monochromia?

    The picture is appropriate today, when television keeps showing a reporter at the wave-doused pier in Atlantic Beach, North Carolina, as the hurricane approaches.

    • Haha…yes, Steve. Thanks! A “Pier” Review. 🙂
      I agree- the waves have me thinking about many friends – I lived in the Charleston area for 15 years before moving to SF. Hoping for Florence to be kind.

  10. Can only imagine where you have to stand , squat, sit or whatever to get these pics!

  11. Incredible black and white. How did you -process the image?

  12. Outstanding work, Jane. I love your POV and composition. I can hear the surf and feel my feet getting wet.

  13. Lovely, I like how you train the eye in this one.

  14. I love this! Abstract with linear! ❤️

Love to hear what you think...
