I was out in Hollywood on a charter bus tour, and took this shot of the Hollywood United Methodist Church. Shooting through tinted windows of a moving bus is quite a chore, but my Pentax *ist DS (and Photoshop) came through alright. I wish I could have used my polarizer to get the reflections out, but I still think that this is a pretty nice picture.

Critiques and comments are welcome!

It's an impressive building, but the perspective in a shot like this is just too weird for me. In cases such as this, I think a tilt lens is almost imperative.

I attempted to correct the perspective with a little Photoshopping, and I think I fixed it a little. Of course, I'm sure that this isn't as good as using a tilt lens, but it turned out okay.

The church was taken at an odd angle (its tough to compose from a moving bus,) and at 18mm, which probably contributed to the distortion.

This is a beautiful structure. It's tough getting any shot worth keeping from a moving vehicle.Composition isleftto whatever you can grab in just a few seconds. Good job under the circumstances.
