Lights in the sky.
I was only able to see this during the day, but I do wonder what this pier would be like with all the lights at night. The sunlight still caught them and even gave the pier a it of a lacy look.
I like the contrast of artificial and natural and of the hard versus the soft. I also like the simplicity. The original picture also showed the beach along with all the houses. That picture was far too busy. This, I think, is simple without being plain.
