    I agree with RM. It is a great shot and it all works very well. No need for editing and changing what the architechs intended. and its not lens fault at all its an optial illusion, all the lines are bending inwards so when a vertical line appears your eyes adjust too much. hence the outward bend. Simple really.
    Great shot and good eye.

    Thanks Rob and Dennis. Ruud is however correct, its why I put it up.
  • Dennis Veldman 10/03/2006 17:46

    I agree, it IS a great shot

    I actually think this is a very good shot as it is. Just because it's in the straight-talk section doesn't mean we ,have to rip pic to pieces. I'll be very straight and say, well done RR, that's a great shot.

    Can I say something here. The outside tubular steel of the towers is not distorted; that is how it is. I will add another shot which shows the 'bow' better.
  • Dennis Veldman 10/03/2006 12:45

    There is a tool on PSCS2 that can help top get rid of the lens distortion.
    Lenscorrection if you will, its not easy but it can be done.

    If you level this photo out just slightly it will manipulate the eye and it looks more leveled allready/
    or at least i think it will :)

    fine abstract image of architecture!
  • Oliver Suhr 10/02/2006 21:16

    A good point of view, the strong symmetry works fine.
    greetings, Olli

    not sure, but maybe I would have tilted it a bit lower in order to bring some more of walkway of the bridge into the picture and at the same time getting rid of that rusty spot on top. Besides from that you could have straightened the two towers or whatever, they crank to the outsides somehow...

    cheers, Andy
