Taken in Scheveningen, on the coast of Holland, this image is all about contrast. The contrast between the ocean and the structure we see before us. An example of man's influence on the world. Of how we need to be entertained with more than the simplicity of the ocean. It's interesting to note that while both ocean and structure emphasized my "smallness" in comparison, I wasn't intimidated by the ocean as I was with man's structure.

In respect of post production, it was all about pulling the data, emphasizing the massive detail that goes into such a structure, and by adding contrast to the support pillars showing how over time the ocean will win.

Like most of my images, I run them through LAB. I just love the colour it delivers. It's a difficult process to master and I'm definitely still learning, but it's one that will see your images stand out from the crowd.

I finished off with a simple vignette, added mainly for the colour top left.
