Nice subject.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too dark.

But fixable in post processing. The sky is nice but the shadows are too dark.

In any image that has a "vanishing point" (a point off in the distance where parrallel lines seem to meet), the vanishing point is what people will be drawn to. They really need to be able to see something when they get there.

Here's my quick PSE fix. I lightened the shadows and darkened the highlights.

Also, it's REALLY soft, but that could be because of the reduction in file size.

Thanks for contributing. Hope you don't mind me playing with it.

No, it´s ok. A bit oversaturated maybe. But the "horizon" should be straightened.

Nice picture

Actually, the fence post is pretty close to vertical. Maybe the "horizon" is actually higher on the left than on the right.

The "horizon" is to be searched elsewhere. Distorsion can be handled in Photoshop

You got me there.

I thought you were talking about the "horizon".
