MMX: Battered Defences

Skegness beach in January is cold and inhospitable, but a fantastic place to take powerful images. This one was taken with an Olympus E-620 in the late morning. All around the beach was evidence that winter storms had battered that part of the coastline during the winter. This set of groynes had been demolished by the wind and waves in the previous couple of months. Once again, I kept the contrast high to keep the impression of a low yet bright winter sun. The foreground has had a soft light mode tone put on it and then brushed in, to add some weight to the bottom of the image and to pick out mid-tone detail. I was careful that the viewer could also just discern the wind turbines on the horizon.
