I was in an apartment where you could put a ball in one end of the rooms and it would roll fastly to the other end

Suppose there would be no point in straightening the facad - it's part of the charm

Anyhow - thanks for posting the pictures

Houses in my area are built upon shale and it is pretty stable unless the ground becomes saturated over the years. My home is OK, but a friend has to have his washer bolted to the floor as it will move to the other side of the room if it isn't. The slope is ever so slight and can't be seen if looking for it. But when you put a level on it is is very out of level. I had set up a tripod at an old mill near here and used the hot-shoe level so I know the camera was straight and level, but after looking at the photo while processing I noticed how much out of level the mill actually was.

HDR is NOT what the eye perceives. It looks fake because it is. Stacking images is an abomination of the art of photography. There! I've said it and I'll stick with it.

There are many opinions and yours is no less valued than another. I am on the other side, but I do understand the strong feelings regarding the subject.

The hardwood ceilings of the turrets are clearly visible as a result of the HDR work, and that adds a great deal of appeal to your excellent image.

I like Torgney's adjustment; I was just a little bothered by the leftward tilt.
