Bernd Walz The effect is like a light explosion .. the bright area in the middle dominates the image pretty strongly, therefore shifting the observers attention a bit away from the most exciting parts of the image, e.g. the arc and the areas with steep tonal transitions.

| Comment ||Location: London Arch, Great Ocean Road, Port Campbell, Victoria, Australia|
"London Arch is a natural arch in the Port Campbell National Park, Australia. The arch is one of the tourist attractions along the Great Ocean Road near Port Campbell in Victoria. This stack was formed by a gradual process of erosion, and until 1990 formed a complete double-span natural bridge.
The arch closest to the shoreline collapsed unexpectedly on 15 January 1990, leaving two tourists stranded on the outer part until they were rescued by a helicopter. No one was injured in the event. Prior to the collapse, the arch was known as London Bridge because of its similarity to its namesake." (Wikipedia, accessed 25.05.12)
I've processed another version with fewer hard contrasts; after having compared that with this version, I finally decided to upload this one which of course features pretty hard contrasts. Let me know your opinion. Buona visione!
