I'm sure that this will be one of many lighthouses in this challenge, but I'm not creative enough to come up with anything else. At the time of writing my B&W entries in other challenges are both tanking, so this time I've gone with colour and pushed the processing to stupid levels. Let's see if folks like this any better!

Shot in RAW and used a combination of ACDSee Pro and PS7 to make lots of adjustments to lighting and colour, but nothing that wouldn't be legal in basic. Burned the sky just a little. Resized, border, USM, saved for web.

A great scene marred by heavyhanded processing.
