Default New HDRs of Newport RI

Shot these with a Nikon D90 and a Sigma 18-250, both done with three shots.

Joel,

Like this picture. Look like a piece of art. Especially the reflections in the upper middle window. Gives depth. And, very important to me anyhow

The pictures are optimized for slideshows. The slideshow button is at the upper right. Please use your loudspeakers. There is some music, progressive music from the seventies in the different galleries.

Joel,

I have a tool that removes most distorsions. Made a try at your second picture. I really hope you don't mind. I think it improves the physics of it

Wonderful, framefilling photo, showing the house in it's entirety. Pleasant dynamic range. Not overdone. Congratulations

Joel,

I added some text in my reply to show my appreciation.

Certainly

The tools are in Photoshop CS5. There is Lens correction that does some work and there is

Select all
Edit
Warp (and other tools)

There are profiles for different camera makes and lens combos

Anyhow, may be just me but I'm very sensitive to distorsions - fought many battles against angels - sorry - angles

Wish you a nice weekend, Joel

Torgny

Thanks for the info, I am not sure that Elements 9 has those tools. I know there is a straightening tool but I am not sure about warp. Also Lightroom does not have my lens listed making things in there a little hard. The house on the second photo is actually in real life on a slant and i tried to straighten it some.

Yes, not all buildings have straight angles. Parts of my town is built on very thick layers of clay. In a hundred years there can be substantial differences

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
