like it, maybe a little wider... and a lower iso, and shutter speed.

Not sure what you are basing that on as here are the settings from the exif.

Exposure Time = 0.6"
F Number = F4
Exposure Program = Not defined
ISO Speed Ratings = 100
Exposure Bias Value = -0.7EV
Metering Mode = Spot
Flash = Flash did not fire, compulsory flash mode

The little wider is possible if so desired as it was
Focal Length = 26.25mm

I'm not sure it needs to go wider, but it would benefit from a quick straighten and frame slightly more right as it isn't balanced.

It makes quite a nice advertising shot, but isn't conveying too much else to me. I think a B/W version would work giving a more dramatic feel. Here is a quick edit to show the sort of thing I'm thinking.

i just didnt like the roof getting chopped off, and more angle would leave ample space to fix the barrel effect.

I meant why you thought ISO needed dropping as well as shutter speed.

Thanks guys. Great comments. I do like it B/W. I think my level in the K7 may be a tad off, because I think I had it level according to the indicator.

I really like the Manfrotto. Great tripod. Solid, and tight. I was thinking it was a lot to spend on something that just holds my camera, but I'm glad I did.
