Very good one Calr, nice colors too. You probably could try to fix the slight distorsion on the left. Anyway i like it very much!

There is a slight amount of perspective distortion on the left but I don't think that's what you are referring to. The lighting on the power pole makes it look bent but it's not. So, I am curious what you are referring to. I have a large print of the picture here in my office and the only unusual thing I see on the left side is a portion of the display that is not lit but is silhouetted in front of the candy cane.

Please tell me what you are referring to as I am going out tonight to shoot some more.

Thanks,
Cal Rasmussen

Hi calr, i was speaking about the perspective distorsion that probably you could try to fix (for me it is always an hard job to fix this sort of things without introducing other worse distorsions, but i have seen people that do wonderful things !)

In your image the vertical lines appear to be tilted a bit, so you could try to fix it by skewing a bit toward the opposite direction (in PS there is a skew funcion working on selections).

The lines on the far left, can be fixed using perspective in PSE. I love the photo. The actual decorations are the height of tacky (IMHO) but have made a great photo opportunity for Calr. Haven't done a panorama yet (still wimping out) so I'm impressed with what you've done here. Good job.
