Golden Saint.

By Nigwel
Take in London last year.
I know the wall on the left isn't upright but I`m working on the hints and help for Photoshop and Lightroom to rectify it.

I quite like it for some odd reason, maybe be because it looks like it`s just hovering above the tree`s..

The colours are much the same as it comes from the camera.

In Elements, it's Image/Transform/Skew, then move the little boxes at the corners as far as you want them. When you save, the software will autoselect the PSD format - you'll need to change this manually to jpg.

Skew allows you to do different things at the two sides: selecting Perspective makes symmetrical changes.

I took the top left corner out a bit, and the bottom right a fraction for my mod.

As John says - Skew is the most flexible means for correcting angles that are just slightly off true, because you can adjust each corner of the image separately. It also has the advantage of causing minimum loss of canvas - if you rotate the image you lose a bit from each side. Use it in conjunction with the Grid (under View).

One thing to bear in mind with Skew though is that you have to watch the effect of an adjustment right across the frame, it doesn't just affect the pixels in the individual corner. It can cause distortion of proportions too. It needs to be managed with care.

I like this image a lot, I think it's the combination of cold, hard stone with exuberant green foliage.

It's a pity that you beheaded the statue top left. Because of that I would be inclined to crop down to the roof, moving a bit of overhanging foliage down to keep the framed effect; and also crop off the bottom up to the base of the golden statue's plinth. The tighter crop would give greater importance to the statues.Modification to follow.
