Nice photos, in particular the first one. I like the way the water and the fence create a path.

Richard,
The first shot has a much better composition. In my opinion like Barbara said the lines tend to lead you somewhere and make you wonder.
The second shot is sort of laid out before you and there isn't the feeling of wonder other than the beautiful sky. Hope this makes sense. Incidentally that doesn't make it a bad shot just not as intriguing as the first.

In the 2nd shot was the lightpole on the right naturally non-vertical? If it's supposed to be vertical you may want to consider some straightening.

Very strong composition in the first shot. The fence and puddles really add to this picture. I love it!

Thanks for the kind words everyone. Selvin - From what I remember it was slightly tilted, but I am interested to hear how it would be straightened (I use Corel Photo Paint at the moment).


By the way, these are taken with the Sony DSC-V1 which I am very impressed wtih.



Best Regards,

Richard.

Richard,

I am not sure what the menu choices in Corel would be. But in Photoshop it is called "Transform/Skew".

This allows you to fix distortions due to awkward perspectives or lens' problems.

Here's a 2 minute fix of the skewed pole using Photoshop Elements:

Some individuals would even suggest getting rid of the pole and wires but I believe they add a nice touch to the photo.
Aloha

Yep, that looks pretty good. :) Need to purchase Photoshop, just the price...

I would leave the post on too. :)

There's always Photoshop Elements 2 ... it will do many of the adjustments that its big brother does.
