This is the coastguard lookout station on Rossal Point near Fleetwood, and though I've never seen it manned, it does have an emergency telephone which you can just make out in this shot.
The post-processing for this one was quite dramatic, despite the rather under-stated end result, so I thought I'd put the original up too:
As you can see, the major change is to the tone/colour of the image, but I also spent quite a lot of time working on balancing the foreground and the tower/sky areas of the image. Unusually, I reduced the contrast for the sky and tower which has given the image a more painterly feel than it would otherwise have had.
As always, I'd be interested to hear what you think of it.
