Monument (London)

By mark1309  
Monument, London. This is the inscription on the bottom of the Monument -
"This Monument designed by Christopher Wren was designed to commemorate the Great Fire of London 1666 which burned for three days and consumed more than 13,000 houses and devastated 436 acres of the city.
The monument is 200ft in height, being equal to the distance westward from the Bakehouse in Pudding Lane where the fire broke out. It took six years to construct 1671 - 1677 the Balcony is reached by a special stairway of 311 steps and affords panaoramic views of the Metropolis. A superstructure rises from the Balcony and supports a copper Vase of flames.

I'm sure in PS3 there must be a way of straightening the buildings, the worst being the one on the right hand side, if anyone knows how I would appreciate the advice.

Hi Mark, good shot!
Try 'select all/edit/skew' and use the 'show/grid' to bring up a grid to align the verticals with. I use this every week for my pubsigns!
Let me know how you got on.

Thanks Tony and Ray42 for your advice on straightening the building in this shot, version 2 shows my effort, still not perfect but getting there, I need a little more practive with the technique I think.
Thanks again,
