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

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

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.
