    I don't see the crookedness... but I should probably look at it again when I'm more sober tomorrow

    Oh I don't know, shorter exposure, maybe a white balance adjustment or some post color balance. Depends on what you were shooting for. Want to see an edit?

    BTW - I was going to say something harsh, but my since of humor is already borderline. :mrgreen:

    P.S. don't confuse parallax with a tilted camera.

    In what way aren't you satisfied with it?

    If anything, I'd be inclined to cool down the colour balance a little, and to either crop the flag out or get it all in.

    By the way, that is Grand Central Terminal, not Grand Central Station.

    Best,
    Helen

    Ok, just for fun here are some tweaks, including a parallax adjustment and some color balance. No right VS wrong, just something to look at.

    That looks great, what did you do in photoshop just do some messing around with the lens correction stuff? I'm not sure how I feel about the decreased color though... anyways I'm off to take a shower... baths are for females

    It is not crooked, it is parallax or barrel distortion. Quite acceptable.

    Its a great shot nonetheless but its not original. Everyone that goes to the grand central sets there camera on the banister and takes a long exposure.

    I really like the shot though, i like how the ceiling looks in it. (if that makes any sense)
