Playing with the Kodak Retinar wide angle on the DX7630 on a gray day.

And then playing with software.

Original photo, painted lady. Shot from ground level at one corner of the house.



After massive perspective "correction" (manipulation, more like). Note the shape of the lamp (foreground) and the Victorian tower rooms (center):

Thanks.

The software is Photo-Brush from Mediachance. Shareware, $45. I have no connection, just a happy user since 2001.

Pro: has barrel/pincushion distortion removal, perspective correction, interesting color manipulation, kind of a "one-touch" digital photo clean-up called DCE Enhance, straighten, the best resampling I've used including that in Corel PhotoPaint and Adobe Photoshop, sharpening with usable defaults, interesting filter simulations including polarizer, support for Photo Shop Pro picture tubes and a bunch of others.

Con: no layers, no masking to speak of, pretty basic memory management (so if you have lots of pix open, Photo-Brush gets a bit wonky). Formasking and layers,I turn to Corel PhotoPaint, but lately all I've used in Photo-Brush.

Bob -

Can't really take credit for the angle - the house is perched on a hill that's been sliced to make the roadway in front level. The sidewalk is 6 feet lower than the front yard, with a sheer concrete wall.

All I did was spot it as I walked past, eyes on the level of whatever that yellow flower is (whatever it is, it blooms early around here).

I liked the first shot a whole lot. The second looks like my house looks to me after four or more icehouses.LOL
