I won't upload the picture. It's telling me it needs to be 900kb. :lol:

I rotated it left by 2.90 degrees. There are so many odd angles there Julies it's hard to tell if it's too much or too little. :-)

This is nice - and simple! Just rotated to straighten, cropped to keep edges square (which, happily, removed the white ledge to the left), and ran it through the auto corrections in PSE2. Nice job, alady! The trees add a natural framing:-)

How about this, I used the same 2.90 degrees that Ferny suggested and then used transform/distort to make the building's sides vertical. much the same effect as using a shift lens or view camera to take the shot. I then adjusted the angle by about 0.5 degrees.

Interesting isn't it, we don't see things without a perspective effect unless we are in exactly the correct position. Here is the same picture with rectangles added to show that it is actually still converging a little at the top. Overcorrecting for perpective makes a very unnatural looking picture.
