This is distortion created by using a wider angle lens. Shoot from further away or with a less wide angle will resolve this. Or with shots already taken you can correct it with some image editing packages that have correction tools included.

Thanks for your quick answer Pete. I do not have any correction tool available. Eric.

What editing program do you use?

Hmmm! Does it have nothing to do with the fact that the camera was not level in the first place, rather than pointing skyward?

You would have to use software and the easiest way would be to level the horizon then crop the lampost out of the image.

Select area right of lampost and use the transform skew or distort tool

That's another very useful tip, Eric.
Always make a copy to work on, then you have the untouched original to go back to.Smile

Photoshop 7 has the tools to make the changes that you are needing. First click on layers and make a background copy. Next go to edit and from the drop down menu select Transform. Click that and you will get another drop down menu. from that you will need "Scew" This will put some lugs around the image. for this one select and drag the one on the bottom right-hand corner and drag until the horizon becomes level. The lamp standard will remain untouched. Having got the result you want next go to "Image" and select "Trim" from that menu. Click ok. Return to Layers and click the "Merge Layers" this will "Fasten down" the layered file.

It is a useful tool to play about with and comes in very handy when dealing with converging verticals. Try it. Remember any mistakes can be rectified by going to Edit and Clicking on "Undo........" or "Step back" this will cancell the last thing you did.

Not quite.

The lamp standard remains vertical but the lamp part of it becomes more distorted.

In the event of that happening. A short tweak on the oposing lug will correct that .
