    A distorted image of the fanciful details of a 1930s casino at Blackpool, Lancashire, reflected in the tinted glass of a swimming pool. Taken in a howling gale and drizzle with bumped up ISO and at 1/1000 second to avoid shake. I think I need Image Stabilisation!

    i like the play with complementary colours .. and that is almost a duo-chrome :)

    very interesting composition with all that slight distortion.

    what did you do in postprocessing?

    Thanks Alex & Pascal. Alex, this casino is reflected in some tinted glass - bronze and blue. That's what's given the orange hue to the sky. The sky had a very bright spot, but the bottom of the image was dark, so I brought out detail lower down, corrected converging verticals and adjusted curves to give a bit more "punch". Oh, and removed a smear that a seagull had left behind!

    Regards, Tony
