This is a companion shot to this one, a shot of Blackpool Tower, taken on my trip back to the UK in October. In many ways I think I prefer the first shot I posted, but I do like this one too.

On a related note, I'll be using this image for our latest Mini-PSD: the 52nd to be added to the archive since we started including them as part of our tutorials. If you're interested, I'll be uploading it at some point tomorrow morning.

Very beautifully. You are really great talent.

The color has great impact in this one, because of how unique and unexpected it is. Striking mood shot.

This is the Chromasia we know and love. Not a colour I'd pick by choice but really works on this image.

Me too Libby! Lovely photo of my favorite chromasia subject :) Awesome!

I like this one too. I like the open sea at right vs.the scholl-reef.

Purple haze ... I'm uncertain why you needed to use a pernicious pink/purple to glitz up Blackpool ... apart from the fact that it can be done. Keeping in black and white and using subtle changes would have been much more challenging and satisfying.

Richard: I did try a black and white version, but ended up preferring the pernicious one ;)
