Taken at tonight's Lighthouse meet. No attempt at a new and unusual angle, thought I would leave that to it's mistress, Anthony.

Light was pretty poor so we had to work hard to get anything half decent (I obviously didn't work hard enough).

Fill in flash for foreground, ND4 grad to stop the lights burning out. White balance tweaked, resized, sharpened and 30% gaussian blur colour dodge layer added.

All critique welcome as ever. Anthony will never be the same again after having to share it with at least 8 other ePz'ers.

well, the truth is that I always knew, and was trying to help the Government keep it secret by flooding the internet with normal pictures of the lighthouse, people would never suspect it. But, now you let the cat out the bag. I guess the Men In Black will be knocking on your door any moment.
