    This shot of a hotel in Fleetwood, Lancashire, shows the contrast between the money spent on the elegant facade, and the pittance spent on the side. The back is even worse! That was often the way in 1841 - is it much different now? For more info go to http://photoreflct.blogspot.com

    I Love the shot. Maybe if you cropped it from the right. the little white building kind of pulls my eye.

    Totally agree love the building if you can't crop you could clone or airbrush it out. I love old buildings. It is good to see one on here now and then

    Good shot .
    To give it a little more athmosphere, you could even convert it to B&W (with much contrast) and (as already said by Santos) crop it on the right side.

    Thanks for the interesting comments Santos, Scribe and Calypso. You could be right about the white building, though I hadn't really noticed it until it was pointed out. Perhaps I suffer from too much familiarity with both the photograph and the area!

    As for black and white, I hadn't considered that for this shot (and I do a lot of b&w buildings),largely because the colour seems to work - even the red of the bricks. However, I do agree that it would work with this one, and I think I'll give it a go.

    Regards, Tony

    I'm a big fan ok B&W, but I do agree that this shot works really well in color.

    obviously I like black and white but it works in color quite well. If I were going to lose the color i would go period sepia or faded print colors

    Nice light on the building making a nice colour against the sky, although I think it would work B/W or sepia. Being honest I didn't really see the white building until I read the other comments but now I do, I think it would help the pic not being there.

    I am big on natural but I think I would clone out the building not crop the picture to dump it. The picture needs that space I think.
