    Brighton England on a Bank Holiday, with the rotting West Pier shown in the distance.

    Was shot with the Panasonic 7-14mm at 7mm, on the Olympus OMD.

    Great shot and good use of lens & BW - Brighton is one of our favourite break out destinations - the wife goes to the old lanes for her vintage shopping and I do my photography.

    Great place full of interesting and mainly photogenic people.

    Interesting shot.
    I find the distortion of the buildings leaning out a bit distracting.

    Wide angle really makes the shot.

    Cool shot! Reminds me of the song: "The Kooks - Seaside".

    Thank you everyone...

    Thanks Ian, Brighton has such an Eclectic community especially around the lanes. Always something different and interesting to photograph, I enjoy your photography style, so would be interested to see what you capture on your next visit.

    Thanks Phil, will be really interested what you come up with in August. I am planning on returning to this spot to capture a really nice colourful sky at somepoint.
