I took this shot of Washington DC a few weeks ago. Thought I'd share it with you.

Love the night look with the subtle lighting. Nice composition also.

It is a very nice shot and has a nice colors and composition. I was bothered by a slight tilt to the left. I squared up the Lincoln memorial with a grid overlay in PP but the monument still does not look straight. This is lens aberration and not your fault. When taking pictures of this nature turn on the grid in the viewfinder display to get better alignment. I guess I am too picky. I would not have bothered if I did not like the shot.

Lovelife:

I know what you mean about the tilt. If I straighten the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument looks lopsided. If I straighten the Washington, the Lincoln tilts! I probably need to use the grid more often. I've been trying to get the hang using of the histogram, so I've had the grid turned off (can't get them both on the screen at one time). For a shot like this, in which there is adequate time to compose the shot, I should probably just switch from one to the other before shooting.

Suggestion:

Why not make two copies of this picture then correct the tilt of the Lincoln Memorial on one of them and correct the tilt of the Washington Monument on the other one. You couldthen clone thestraightened Washington Monument into the first one.
