Very nice documentary shot, Xwang, captured from an ideal POV and showing up very good detail in the stonework.

I like the fact you have captured a person in the image - adds scale - good.

Looks fine to me, Xiaoli.

I'm not sure whether I'd prefer the lone figure in or out. He adds scale, but is also a little distracting. I'm not sure which benefits the shot most.

I usually bin those shots, not post them. Glad you didn't.

Love the sky, it'd look very dramatic in mono, where you could really push the contrast.

Thank you very much Dave.I could agree more...
If you think this one is good for B&W, I should give a try, because my problem is that I never know which one is good for B&W and which one is not.Thank you for telling me.
Thank you Carol for your compliment.
Thank you all.

Nice pov and great sky, glad you gave so much space to it. As to your question, the right wall of the building on the right side slopes a bit, but its left wall doesn't, so leave it as it is, it's fine. It's a pity your people are walking out of the picture, you should have asked them to turn around and start again.

Grin)))Thank you very much,Pamela.You know that I have problem with prespective all the time, one is I could not 'see' it, second is that if I could , I still don't know how to correct it. After I read your comment, I thought to use selection tool to correct it ,it was such a ridiculous ideaGrin.It didn't work obviously.I should listen to you at first placeSmile.Thank you again for giving me the final answer.

If you really want to correct it, try the warp tool, or free transform (I assume you use PS, but any other software should have a similar tool). This will allow you to pull one corner to correct perspective/sloping walls. But really, as Pamela says, I'd leave it alone. Personally, I didn't notice it.

Hi xiaoli, Kind of agree with comments above. Worth leaving alone but if you want to experiment to totally straighten the building on the right with the edge of the frame try using 'Image'...'Transform'...'Distort'. in Photoshop Elements from where you can distort the image and drag the building vertical from the top corners. But that said the parallax is not that bad so might leave well enough alone. I think it's a great image as it is. Wonderful detail in the stone walls and like the single pillar in the middle. Paul
