A decent image. I'm torn between correction of verticals or not here - it's on the border line. Sometimes structures look more impressive with strongly converging verticals, sometimes not. i would have not used f22 either, but assume you had a tripod for the slow shutter speed. Do feel it is a little under exposed though.
The levels histogram falls quite well short on the RHS, so it is underexposed. A simple correction brings this noticeably to life.
I'd also get rid of the cables etc. but I'd certainly leave the verticals as they are. I couldn't straighten them without leaving the building looking ****-eyed.
Problem appears to be the use of 24mm wide angle setting. Such distortion is common. Perhaps try shooting such an object at say 30-35mm. if possible.
Quote: Hi Tad and welcome to EPZ. You say you are a beginner so the Critique gallery is a good place to learn.
You have started with a fairly good image here but I find it a little dark and my preference for such an architectural shot is to have straight verticals. Doing so for wide shots like this means you will lose some of the picture where cropping has to occur, but I have uploaded a mod. where the vrticals are straight and I have removed the overhead wires to the right by cloning and brightened the image up a bit with brightness/contrast tool.
With your 24-70 lens I don't think I would have chosen f22, given the DEoF of your lens f16 would have been better at 1/160sec. Lenses are usually better stopped up or down from each end.
Please when uploading, give as much information as you can under 'description' about technique employed or proceessing used to achieve your image. It helps the viewer to help you.
I look forward to seeing more of your work.
Thanks for your advice Will try do better next time
I already correct the photo but cannot upload cause im not member yet ;-/
I delited the cables - unlight the trees and straighted the building so i think it looks better now - maybe i Should upload the photo like a new one after correction - dunno, im new here and my english isnt good enough so have problems with many things lol.
However ive got question ; Why i shouldnt use f22? what is the different to use f16?
I set up the f22 to get the best focus as I can in all pic area - so with tripod shouldnt be a problem - byt honestly im not very happy with the quality of the pic ;-(
