Took a quick stab at it. Removed what looked like sensor dust in the sky, straightened the horizon. sharpened some details and lightened the sky. Overall I like the image

Using whatever that link is became a pain in the rear so here's mine.. By the way. There's also a dust spot in the white water near the middle of the structure.. I found 3 total.

Did pretty much the same thing but left the sky alone as I like this type of sky in a photo..

At first, I had the wall a nice rusty color, and although I liked how it looked for a normal photo, this is a PP challenge, and I didn't feel it was unique enough for a challenge.

So, I took the color out of the wall for a more dramatic contrast. I think it suits the rest of what I did better.

Made several changes, most notably changing the perspective and cropping the end of the wall.

I went for a stormy look, found a total of 6 dust spots all in the sky.

Here is my run through lightzone

1. Slight crop of the original frame
2. Relight Tool - Max detail and relight some of the shadows
3. Relight Tool on the Wall only - Bring even more details out of the dark areas of the wall while keeping certain highlights
4. Zonemapper Tool - Expand some of the middle tones in the ocean to create more contrast
5. Saturation Tool - Slightly increased the color saturation of the sand.
6. Zonemapper Tool on the sky only - created more contrast in the clouds and bring out the sunbeams in the horizon.
7. Sharpen Tool - Slight bump in overall sharpness
8. Relight Tool - Illuminated shadows in the whole frame increasing luminosity.

I think you missed one in the highlighted sky...

Very fun image to work with, Graham! Here's my attempt:

Cropped to 16:9, removed dust spots and the pole, converted to b&w and added contrast using various techniques. Oh, and added a girl in a yoga pose
I really loved how the structure led the eye into the picture, but the pole at the end wasn't very interesting, IMO, so I added the girl instead. The idea was also to have contrast between the serenity of a yoga practitioner and the stormy look.

Here's my entry. Too many layers and steps taken to list out. Mostly Photoshop CS3, with a bit of help from Photomatix Pro.

Just thought I'd be different and chop off that thing at the end.
