It's crooked!! I'd level it out along the grass line.... Otherwise, a nice architectural shot. #3249920

Bill, it's a beautiful building! I do think it is a tiny slanted though. Hope you and Brenda are doing fine! :) #3255078

Hi Carol, I agree with you, but the grass does tend to slope a little too. Bill J. #3255137

Good sky, good light, but as pointed out already, the tilted horizon is very distracting. It is a very easy fix in Photoshop. #3260814

William Johnson September 03, 2006

Thank you Dennis for commenting. I have in fact had a play in Photoshop and it does improve the image. Bill J. #3261164

Sylvia Rossler September 03, 2006

It is a wonderful building you captured here Bill !!! Never trust PS in fixing automaticly the horizon :o) But I agree that buildings are sometimes very hairy to shot ! Well done Bill :O) #3262112

William Johnson September 04, 2006

Thank you for your encouraging comments Sylva. I sometime wonder whether to set verticals or horizontals true when taking the shot. LOL Bill J. #3263456
