The sky is wonderfully coloured and with the bonus of the sun on the horizon. But surely, the lighthouse doesn't lean over further than the tower at Pisa, or does it? Perhaps a little Photoshop adjustment is called for, but if done well will make a superb final image.

Great sky and evening light but the light house has a halo on the rhs of it and would agree that the lean needs some attention

A top shot but agree with others just a little straightening of the lighthouse in Transform/Distort & this would have been a cracker.

The lean, by the way, is caused by angling the camera upwards -- it's the same perspective effect you get by looking up at a tall building. It's not caused by the lens per se, though it tends to be more noticeable in a wide-angle shot like this one because things lean more the farther they are from the centre of the lens and the wide-angle includes more stuff that's far from the centre. If there was something to balance it on the left, I wouldn't have a problem with the lean, but it looks a bit strange on its own.

Great work on the HDR processing. I always find it best when the controls are used gently like this.

Dave.

Thanks for the comments all, really appreciated, particularly regarding the perspective correction, not something I've ever really done before but will have a go at a copy of this and see how it looks
