Hi!

These pics were taken this year April, in London (UK). I am waiting for opinions, critics, suggestions.

I've just PSE it to make the tower straight. It looks like it is going to fall over. =)

The china town one is nice. Good colours.

Thanks! I also saw that there is some "leaning tower" effect but could not figure out how to solve it. What software/function did you use to fix this issue?

I think all photoshop software can solve this problem. It is under crop. and check the perspective box. If you look under PS help, it should tell you how to change the perspective. gl.

I like both photos, but more so the one of the market. Nicely done except (and I'm sure you may not have been able to help it, shooting through glass) I can see your reflection in the window. But when you are taking candid shots like this, there's not much you can do. Would PS be able to help get rid of this? I'm not a pro at using software for photo manipulation.

How to make me "disappear" from the pic? Is there any software tool or it?

we could make everyone "disappear"

Another method as well as a perspective crop is transform perspective, just pull the top left out until building is half way straight, now pull lower left inward until it is straight, use either a guide or the grid to help you see. Othere methods would be the distort that would workhere because the only tall sectionat distance is on theleft so just distort that corner until straight.Sometimes a pinch filter (if you get some barrel (or with PS CS2 distort>lens correction I tried this afterwards as I have that on my other machine and darn it was easy using the perspective mode. Don't forget to sharpen afterwards as all these methods blur the image a little.



oops nearly missed 2 by the burghers of calais statue.

Wow! This trick is very cool, thanks for it.

But "make me disappear" I meant not for the 1st but for the 2nd photo, where I am visible on the shop window.

So again, thanks for this advice, I like it too and it is useful, but can you solve the problem of the 2nd shot?

Thank you!

I think the building shot needs a little more head room on it and a little less grass.

I find the Chinatown shot confusing because I'm not sure if the person's face is the center of attention or the hanging meat.

A question I ask myself (sometimes, when I can remember) is:

"How do I feel about this scene, and how can I take a photo that expresses my feelings best".

If you keep asking the question, and try to use your camera to answer the question, and keep practicing and refining, your shots will become much more interesting, because they will say something about you!
