I came across this house on a quiet Greek island. I was attracted by the symmetry as well as the random tablecloth drying on the line.

Welcome to EPZ Sarah and I hope you enjoy the site.

The house does make a good shot - the colours are very pleasing. But it is a pity that the fence is there as it obscures the view.

Thank you CathR. I kind of liked the fence as a sort of contradiction to the prettiness of it, also the lines that it created. But I appreciate the comment.

I love taking such shots but unless it's from the level as the subject I don't bother.

Ah. Interesting. I hadn't thought of that at all. Thank you for the feedback. When I took the photo I was drawn in by the parallel lines crossing the image. It didn't occur to me that the perspective could've been better. Thank you.

Hello, Sarah
I've had a browse through your pf and this photo caught my attention as i have had a wide-angle camera too and i've had several problems such as the one encountered here too. i saw nobody uploaded a mod, so i played a little with this image. and it turned up quite far from the ideal, but i thought it would work to give another viewpoint. I am truly sorry for the very tight crop, but i found myself with no other choice, as there were 2 major problems with the original image: first, as doolittle said, the house wasn't at the level of the viewfinder. this combines with a distortion of perspective due to a wide-angle camera. another problem is that the camera wasn't straight and therefore the image needed a 4-5 degrees rotation. As the rotation would have only highlighted the distortion problem, i tried to solve both and i didn't find it possible to do so without cropping the image. However, a little crop on the bottom needed to be done, for the image was unbalanced.
As far as the fence is concerned, it is true that the image would have been "cleaner" without it, but i didn't mind this as much as i tried to focus on the distortion issue. I don't know if you are satisfied with it or not, but i tried all my best.
Keep it going!Smile

Thank you ptitcentrier... that is indeed a huge improvement. Much crisper and cleaner. Thank you. I have noted your comments. Thank you for taking the time to do that.
