    A shot of downtown Cleveland. I did a lot of work in Photoshop with this, because it was a very difficult exposure. Bright sky and deep shadows on the buildings. Several curves adjustment layers, and some color balance left me here, and I'm pretty pleased overall.

    What do you think? :)

    For a pic with so many stright lines it flows around in a circle very well. My eyeballs just keep going round and round the pic from one line to the next. Awsome picture..............

    I noticed that too with some other photos. Barrel distortion and pincushing sometimes work for certain pictures. I agree that it works well for this picture. What I like the most from this picture is the lighting, copper tone from the buidlings, and the red and blue in the lower corner.

    Your other picture is nice too. I like the surreal effect it has from the angle. The light green glass pole also give it a nice look.

    I agree, it does work for some pictures. I only get it really bad at 18mm on my kit lens, and it's easily corrected in PS, for the most part, so if you see, it's intentional. I thought it worked in this image too.

    Thanks for checkin out my other photos too. Those glass poles were just begging to be photographed :)
