jelpee,

Thanks, it's a constant struggle with angels, sorry, angles. This is a really big house for being built as a summer residence, so there must (?) be at least some slight divergence.

Wide angle lenses have to be used with care, I think

Nice picks. Did you shoot the cottage? It looks pretty.

Yes very nice composition. The contrast between the two houses is striking -- one lavish and one spartan.

Default Nice job:

I like both pictures of that residence, Torgny. You did a good job, framing it with interesting angles and perspective!

Ordo,

vvcarpio,

Walter


Thanks for viewing and the comments. One of all my sons found a book on architectural photography at the University Library. I'll browse it, for sure. Central are of course the verticals

Using the eyes is as always a good start when you take on architectural objects.

I think it's ok to use software to correct excessive wid angle distorsions.

The little cottage came as a bonus, didn't notice it until I scrutinized the picture files on the PC

A small contribution to the rich and poor theme
