The Barbarian,

Well, that's a very nice name, "irish confetti". On the other hand the craftsmen who do this backbreaking work have to be very exact following patterns

Yes, it's much better and I do it too, in PS (lens correction or skew) - If a person focuses on a point right in front, but uses the lateral(?) seeing to the left and right -is there really a difference or are the verticals parallel to the the vertical in front of him

This worries me - not so much for architecture where the distorsions often are obvious - but for landscape where it's virtually impossible to get it right unless you know your lens very well and know how much correction is needed for every millimeter of angle

Know you don't like this kind of distorsions - suppose you have given it a thought


This picture shows one of all the old patterns and a new one
