I made this photograph on vacation a week ago in Varadero Beach, Cuba.

Walking back to our room I was struck by how peaceful and surreal the swimming pool looked on a still, dark night.  I included the empty lounge chairs in the foreground to add to the sense of emptiness and stillness.
This was shot with a Sony a6000 body, using a 10mm Samyang lens. Exposure time was 65 seconds at f/8. RAW conversion and black and white conversion done with DxO Optics Pro and DxO Film Pack. Additional post-processing with Photoshop CC 2014.
