This thread has some age to it.
I finally have some finished pictures of this job.
The pool deck is tough to shoot because it's heavily shaded all day. So being there at the right time, when the sun is at the right position is challanging. The pics were shot with Fuji 35mm Superia Reala, with a wide angle lens.
The pool is NOT dirty!!! They had the pool completely re-done. New Plaster and new tile. The tile they went with is a VERY VERY VERY dark blue, therefore it makes the water appear black! I think it's Wicked
The shape of the pool was the shape of the previous concrete pool deck. Client was NOT interested in changing the shape.
