just the 18-135 kit lens. open for C&C

I put it into photoshop and used file>transform>distort to straighten out the right side and the ceiling. Hope you do not mind. I pulled it up and out and here it is.

But isn't the ceiling sloped?My first reactionwas to think the perspective was off also,until I really looked at the picture. The vertical lines are straight, both the wall and the tapistries. Thetable is level.It wasn't taken with an extreme wide angle. It just looked to me likethe original picture is correct, and the ceiling is sloped.

In any case,I like the exposure and lighting.

Perspective? I wasn't siting in the room centre whilst taking the shot

I was siting about one third from the left and swiveled a bit to take in the

tapestry on the right, as you can see the wall on the right looks longer

than the wall on the left andwith an18mm lens setting, so near ceiling

on the left seems closer than near ceiling on the right hence the perspective

view and the seeming sloping of the ceiling support beams.I had just sat

down when a group came in and told me of the wedding function, so I hurriedly

grabbed a shot and left:-)............musket.
