This was taken on a brilliantly sunny day which really showed up the contrast of the brickwork. The left side of the window isn't straight but altering it made the rest of the window look wonky so I can only assume that the frame is warped in some way.

Works nicely.

You're looking up at the window, so you'd expect the verticals to converge somewhat. Is that what's going on or is there something else at play? (I've only eyeballed it as I'm at work so I don't have any image processing software to hand.)

I considered the converging verticals aspect but I couldn't work out why it would affect only one side and not both. I tried altering the verticals (using PS and in the darkroom) but straightening the left made the right look peculiar - in fact it made the whole picture look........wrong. I'm hardly a wiz with PS though.

Works well for me - the wonky window is just that . . . a wonky window: settlement probably. But it actually adds to the image rather than detracts - so stop PSing about and leave it alone Wink
