    Thanks! I favor the HDRIs too. They remind me of Kodachrome ASA 25 slide transparency film - which is what I shot mostly in my later film days.

    Out of all of them, I would have to say that I find #4 the nicest. I also quite like the water cascading off the upper part of the structure in #5.

    Unfortunately all of them seem to suffer some sort of perspective issue whereby the structure appears to lean to the right and back.

    Great subject - I could see expending a lot of "film" there!

    Number 4, but all of them need some straightening, distortion correction or selective postprocessing.

    Yeah, what IS that anyway??? I was getting something like that in the bungalow shots too. I put guides on a few of these in PS and they check out. Man!, I just don't get it.:grumpy:

    The camera was 22cm off the ground so I can understand why it's leaning back - but what optical illusion is at play here that makes them appear tilted? Gar...

    Thanks. What kind of selective processing did you have in mind?

    I voted #5 because I like the comp and colors the most in this one. I would watch out for the halos that you can get from the contrast of sky and dark trees that you have in that one. I enjoy the distortion of the shots personally. That's one of the reasons people get wide angle lens IMHO. Granted to get these same type of shots with a longer lens, you would have to back up quite a bit.

    Out of all of them that suck, number 5 sucks the least. Jk by the way :mrgreen:, they are all great, but #5 is still my favorite. I think you did a great job with the HDR (from what I can tell), the colors are nice! Very strange how the structure leans slightly to the right as others have said, but the lamp posts are straight.

    Good tips, thanks! Also good point on the distortion! I like the vertical splay distortion that makes them seem to lean back but the tilt is annoying when I notice it. Maybe it's some kind of gimbal affect where when the vertical ring's distortion is high the horizontal distortion becomes acutely sensitive. <shrug>


    Ah, finally an honest man!

    oops... :blushing: (hehe, gotcha... :lmao:)

    Yup, still scratching my head. Oh, well I can just rotate my monitor a bit to the left till I figure it out.

    I think that somewhere in between the last two saturation wise would be good
