Having been a collector of Ricardo's work for a while its always a pleasure to open a new piece.

On this I love the warmth it gives out, as right now we have about a foot of snow outside, it makes me miss warmer times.

the use of light is superb, shooting directly into the sun is never easy, many get it wrong but here its perfect.

The golden tones mixed with the old state of the pier add a peaceful feel to this image, somewhere you can go to dip your toes into the water and watch the sun rise.

The texture of the wood mixes the rough with the smooth of the sky and water.

A superb image once again.

This is such an eye catching piece of work. The colours in the sky are amazing and the way it reflects onto the pier really add something to the picture. I love the way that the pier seems to be leading to nowhere but the sunset, this really gives it a magical feel.

You've really captured a beautiful scene which makes the viewer want to be there, sitting on the end of the pier. I also love the way the photo isn't cenetered on anything and doesn't have a symmetry to it, which makes it all the more interesting. I could sit and look at the image all day, it's absolutely perfect work.
