Couldn't find any birds today, so changed lens and went in another direction. Donna

While I like the mood of the photograph, you have to watch out with mergers with the frame. Also, since this is digital it's easy to fix the perspective before posting.

Donna- Very nice. I like the mono tone and the shadows really work. Gives the viewer that "down home" feeling.

Mikefellh- I'd like to know more on how the perspective can be fixed. I have Lightroom beta 4 and I know that it has a horizon fixing feature. It that what you are refering to?

Nice photo. I wouldn't worry about the perspective as Mike suggests. I would perhaps cut off a couple of milimeters of the right side to avoid the black edge, but that is proabbly a matter of taste.

When shooting upward toward something, the lines running vertical aren't square...you get a trapazoid shaped scene, which you can see here with the post and the door frame. You can see extreme examples of this when shooting tall buildings from the ground.

In programs like Photoshop there is perspective correction to fix this. I don't know a thing about Lightroom though.

Regarding my comments they aren't meant to criticise the image...rather to give tips to help improve it.
