This shot was taken during one of my one-to-one training sessions while I was back in the UK, but it's a shot I would have taken during any of my trips to Fleetwood beach - there's just something about part-buried/abandoned objects that really appeal to me.
In this case though I wasn't especially happy with the original capture: the light was flat, the sky had no detail and, despite its abandonment, the bike looked far too 'cheerful'. With the addition of a few Curves though, and a 'respray' (the bike's colour was inverted), I think it ended up looking a lot better.
As the processing was quite interesting, particularly in terms of changing the colour of the bike, I've posted this one as our latest Mini-PSD.
