I came across this old disused winch on a local beach. As the sun had already set I used a diffuse flash to brighten up the photo.

The rusting boat winch stands out very well against that dramatic sky and make for an interesting shot with the flash doing a good job of highlighting the detail and texture of the steel, the bottom left part of the FG is just a little too bright which is easily put right in CS2

Thanks for the comment Steve. I will try and do something about the foreground and edit the pic.
