Default The Cloisters, NY

The Cloisters, located in upper Manhattan, is devoted to the art of medieval Europe. Due to restrictions, no tripods or leaning on wall permitted. So here's a try at hand-held photos in low light level conditions.

1,2,& 3 are your best shots. 1 & 2 need perspective straightening. #4 has a lot of misallignment and processing color is way off. Greens too yellow and sky not right.

I've tried straightening in PE8 but just couldn't seem to get all verticals correct. Any advice you can offer? Was it the conditions?

I agree about the 4th one not working.

There's some CA in the first one. I've sometimes found that both LR and Photoshop sometimes struggle to correct it when you've done the HDR conversion already. Another way of going about it is to use the clone tool and choose "color" instead of normal mode - then pick the color you want. It will keep the tone, just color over the CA. You might try it on the first one.

Bynx - I've always just used free transform to adjust lines. I like your results better than what I usually get.

Unfortunately working with these little lo res files I notice that the distorting corrections leaves the image a little fuzzy.
