Here's the Carnegie Art Museum in Oxnard, California. Just used the convert to BW in PS2, then some ajustments with curves and brightness/contrast.

Nice one Walter.

This shot looks great in monochrome.

I'm not sure what you mean.

Well I think he is referring to the perspective distortion. I am not sure that the photo is tilted but the right side is definitely leaning. It might be difficult to level it since there is nothing in the photo to use as a reference. I think the perspective tool in PSP could straighten those columns but I am not sure we would like the results. I'll give it a try and if it turns out ok, I'll post it.

(edit) Well I was way wrong. There is no perspective distortion but image is tilted about a half degree to the right. Here is the straightened color image. It looks like the columns on the right side are leaning out but it is just an illusion.

I agree with those who think it's an illusion coupled with the distortion.



Walter,

nice work indeed.

Aloha
