Great composition with the lights and the street leading us to the impressive building in the distance, and a lovely mood from the exposure

This is a lovely low light street scene, and well exposed and composed. Unfortunately I am distracted by the fact that lens distortion is causing the buildings to lean in toward the centre, especially on the left hand side. This could easily be corrected in digital software, some of which is very powerful free off the internet ( eg gimp). However a sophisticated and easy program to use would be Photoshop elements - if you have it, open the picture go to Image>transform>skew and drag out the top corners until you are happy with the result. There are other ways to do this of course but this one is easy - and if you already know all this please ignore it. A.

My only slight dispute is that I see very little lens distortion here, where this looks instead to be almost entirely an effect of perspective from pointing the camera upwards.
Best corrected by holding the camera level when taking a shot; following accipiter's advice works a treat too, but you will end up needing to crop some of the edges

Wow! impressive dynamic range. I'd be tempted to "mess" with the verticals. You were right, English lavender.
