    I went to Denver this last Wednesday to get some slide film... I was sold print and I didn't even realize that until after I had already taken to rolls. I these are the only ones that I'm somewhat happy with...

    1. I know that this first one is a little overexposed but I'm just too lazy right now to fix it.

    2. I had a litte bit of fun in PS on this one... the angle was intentional when I took the pic. I was following the the row of tomstones in the front.

    3. How is the last one... I know that the angle was off on this one but if I made the angle right on one set of windows then the others are off any suggestions?

    Did you visit the Denver Art Museum? It just opened a few weeks ago and looks like a building from outer space crash-landed downtown. 16th St. Mall is also a terrific area to take pictures, near by the convention center as well.

    As to the angles in the last: this is your normal barrel distortion and unless you own a very expensive so-and-so camera (you see: this is a total "expert" speaking *cough-cough*), i.e. one that is specialised on architecture photography (it has a proper name, only don't know that one right now), or you have a PS version that can help you correct the distorted lines, you will have to live with it. Many of my pics of Berlin architecture sport these distorted lines and I usually go for one straight side letting the others show as they do. Though last year in Hamburg - come to think of it - in photos taken with the little Powershot I had horrible distortion in all directions. Lines falling to the right and left and right again all in one frame :roll:

    Other than the fact that (to my mind only) the last has a bit too much sky, I quite like that one.

    The picture was not quite level in the original. I mess for a long time in PS to try to get it right, I couldn't find a line that made it look better it was straight. I was thinking making one of the two end lines straight that might help it. I knew that the line distorted but I just couldn't fix it so that the picture looked right... Right now... the whole picture looks crooked to me.
