Be brave, crop the shot (and maybe straighten a little, too?). It's so good it deserves that final polish.You've got some great tones in the conversion and the composition is real good. Well seen,taken and converted. Nice!
Thanks!I did straighten a bit and corrected some lens distortion, but for some reason the horizontal lines still look off, even though when I scroll this page and line them up with the top of the browser window they look fine. I should have taken another little step to the left to line up the center of metal-work with the center of the block behind. Maybe that would have straightened out the cracks in the bricks along the bottom of the frame too.I could have adjusted the prospective, I guess, the verticals aren't too vertical.I have a hard time, when I'm behind the camera, to stop and think things though. I was actually out to shoot something else (which I doubt I'll even post, since I'm not that happy with the results). I just saw this walking back to the car and took a quick snap, but maybe I'll go back and give it another go.
