Prince's Pier in Port Melbourne at sunrise.  Station Pier is visible to the far left, and Williamstown on the far right.

Prince's Pier is a heritage-listed pier, which was the landing point for many immigrants arriving in Australia.  It was also heavily used by the US navy during the Second World War.  After the advent of containerisation, it fell into disuse and was nearly destroyed by fires.  It was reopened to the public late last year after a restoration project, which saw the first 200m restored, and the remainder of the wooden piles restored, and left standing in the water.  (EOS 5D mkII, 17-40mm f/4L USM)

I first saw Prince's Pier last November from the Spirit of Tasmania as we departed for Devonport from Station Pier, and ws fascinated by the "graveyard" of wooden piles, sticking out of the water.

My first try uploading here. Took it this morning at the lake close to our summerhouse back in Sweden. I am an amateur and newbie with LR so I think I overdid it a bit in LR, but would really appreciate any comments and advise. 5DMkIII 24-105L, 1/200, f/10, ISO320, 24mm. Please don't judge too hard.

The biggest problem is the blown cloud formations. For the best impact, you need to retain at least most of the detail. Essentially, there is only two ways of achieving that, HDR (of which I'm not a great fan unless done carefully to keep it natural) and the use of neutral density graduated filters. If you shot in RAW, it is sometimes possible to create three or more exposures from a single file, but I suspect in this case, too much detail has been lost, so it would probably require a reshooot (which would never be exactly the same of course), by either bracketing to get three or more exposures or using filters. Compositionally, it is ok, you have the lilies to use as a leading line, supported by the oultine of the hill reflection and you have some nice reflections to provide some foreground interest. If you can practice using HDR or filters (especially filters), you could make some big improvements. Also check on your white balance and choose your shooting times for when the light is at its best.

This is a perfect scenario for grad ND's. Not too much protruding from the landscape.

Thanks Kernuak and RLPhoto for your tips. I don't any ND filters yet, but will defo have a look at it. I went back to the same place this afternoon and shot some more, now RAW also, although in different light conditions. (I'm only back in Sweden for a few weeks and have only shot jpg because it's mostly family stuff.) I will try to work a little on them and re-post tomorrow.

I can't remember seeing it in B&W before. I think with some dodging and burning of the sky, the clouds would look quite menacing. This is further down Glen Etive, at the head of the loch.

Here's one, from an area very close to the heart and very close to a large, out-of-control wildfire that's now burning in southeast Oregon (17-40L, 40D):
