Stunning images. It looks the sort of place that you would need to spend a couple of days there just to see how the light changes the look and colour/texture of the building through the day and especially just before sunset.

Many thanks for your kind comments David.
Frank, I nearly got there, it's just those damn verticals again. You are of course right but I was sure I sorted it. I have a feeling that I did some final adjustments on the high res version but uploaded a resized image without this final bit of work. Or I am going mad!
Cheers,
Phil

V1 is an excellent shot with some Wow factor. The light was really nice, and youve used the light to make a detailed, contrasty image that works very well.

V2, though good, lacks some of the sharpness and contrast of V1, - might be an optical illusion due to size though.

V1 for me Phil, for all the reasons that everyone's already put forward.
Personally I wouldn't concern myself with straightening it.
I've just opened it in Picasa and depending on which part of the image you align with the grid,
a corresponding part becomes misaligned on the other side.
The problem (if you can call it that) looks to me, more like Frank's old favourite, converging verticals and I think it's so slight as to be unnoticable.

I like it.

Bren.

Thanks Bren, it's definitely converging verticals that's the problem. As you can imagine the building looked like it was falling in on itself due to the low pov. I just think it's a basic requirement for this kind of shot so I hate being pulled up on it if you follow my meaning.
At least I seem to have ironed out the issues I had with the other shots from Lister Park.
Cheers,
Phil

Hi Phil,
Regarding the business of converging verticals, I couldn't agree more.
I think far too much fuss is made over it. In real life we see a certain amount of perspective so why do we atempt to remove it in our images?
There's a great example in the "Tell it" group in which a building looks as if it's practically falling over . It's so far out, you'd never get it back in processing but that's how it really looks.
As for ironing out the other issues, I reckon you certainly have!
Cheers,
Bren.

Nice image - V1 is best. Colours may be slightly over saturated for me, but depicts the evening light well. Would need a set square to decide on verticals - leave it alone - there's nothing wrong.
