As I opened the heavy metal door to its entrance, light falls inside the building. This Madura lighthouse was built in 1879, by dutch colonials when Indonesia was still under the dutch rule. The ancient aura place evokes the spirit of Hemingway. I can easily imagine santiago from 'the old man and the sea' climbing up those metal stairs, with mast on his back. I shudder, but with excitement. As I ascend 16 flights of pure heritage.

Notes: I decreased the vibrance in PS to stand out the blue on the door. The vibrant blue was deliberate to give some sort of feeling of energy emmitting. I have also adjusted exposure and contrast to make the lights stand out.
