This is the first of five shots that I took while out and about with Theis Dahl on Saturday. Theis was down in Blackpool for some photography and Photoshop training, and while we spent most of the time on post-production, we did spend a few hours up at Fleetwood – photographing the beach, washed up stuff, the Wyre wrecks, and so on. It was a good weekend.

Of the five shots that I'll be posting there are three others that I prefer to this one, but Theis also has a shot of this plastic bottle so I thought it would be a good one to post first. If you're interested, his shot is here:

Hopefully he'll be posting some more shots from our shoot over the next few days.

In case you're wondering about the colour, my version was processed in LAB Color mode (as described in this tutorial), i.e. I manipulated the 'a' and 'b' channels to alter the colour balance and saturation.

As always, let me know what you think.
