Some very subtle light attracted me here – A tilt~shift lens would have been the perfect weapon but hey that’s a 4 figure sum (so you have to make do with the converging verticals)

I sometimes correct for converging verticals after the fact in Photoshop, but that has some drawbacks too. And often—as here—the converging verticals are actually attractive!
Thanks Vladimir, I am familiar with photoshop tool but couldn’t make a success of it here.
Very attractive indeed Scott, lovely image.
I posted this a year ago and only managed a single like
Absolutely glorious – these are the type you do that I really love! (Well, to be honest, I love them all…)
Thank you – your comments are always generous, you will love my next post then
Heh! have NO idea what a tilt~shift lens is even, but agree that the lighting in this shot is amazing!
yes I didn’t spot this on first perusal – looked at it and thought must have taken it fr a reason
Wonderful photo and great light
Thanks so much
I too have no idea what a tilt shift lens is, but it looks to me like you didn’t need it. This is a fantastic shot with great light, great lines!
Thanks Sheila – I get a buzz when I come across something that previously I had overlooked.
You know, the converging verticals don’t bother me in this image. I agree the light is lovely. You know, if you dislike the verticals, you can easily fix them in processing. I find the lens correction function in CS4 does the job every time and back in the day when all I had was PS Elements, that worked just fine too.. I dislike losing pixels (confessed pixel peeper here!) so I always try to get the best angle to reduce the distortion as much as possible ‘in camera’ and then tweak in CS4.
A tilt-shift would be fun though. It’s on my dream kit wishlist
I use PS Elements 8 – which has the option but I’ll be honest was more focussed on the light forgot to adjust lol
