Really nice one Jim. Just a small point. There is a barrel curve to the overall image. From left to right all the horizontal lines form a large arc. I think this can be fixed using Warp in Photoshop. Other than that this is an ideal shot. Nice composition and I feel like its complete and not part of something bigger. The building is all there and the tree on the right gives a nice finish to the right side. The flower heads on the bottom give it some depth and some color to draw the eyes to the left and right. Well done.

stitching looks good, bynx's fix to the verticals helps.

Thanks for the help! It took me 4 tries to get it this far. I ended up taking many, many shots at 50mm to pull it all together. I was inspired by an old photo postcard of the building. Matching it would have been simple except the postcard shot was taken from a distance, 80 years ago, before the trees got big and other buildings moved in.

I've searched for the 'WARP' function but I can't find it. I tried the transform, skew, distort, but none of these seems to get it. Is this something beyond Photoshop Elements?

In the same area as Transform, Skew,Distort, Warp is the last on the list. At least in Photoshop CS4. I dont know what Elements short changes you on.

I use PSE 7 - go to Filter/Correct Camera Distortion and use the sliders.
