Here are a couple of pictures. I need to know ...

A) chopped theU andN on the Fun House is bad

B) second picture is better (but it looks lopsided to me... but I couldn't help it the fun house was lopsided)

C) try again and any other suggestion that would be helpful

Are these the finished crop ? Or as they came out of the camera ?

If this is your 'crop', then yes, it would have looked better if you could've kept all of the name at the top.

Yes you have more of the Fun House in the frame but still cut off the owners name at the very top.

If the bits at the top were missing in the original, then the obvious is to stand further back, or use less zoom. If it is the result of your cropping, you could try using the Skew command under Transform. This is a method of cropping, but as the name suggests, you can skew or distort the image to try and correct 'lopsidedness'.

I thought it might look better getting rid of the names at the top, easier than trying to add to it. Then I Skewed it and replaced the dead lightbulb in the curve on the right.

Hope you like my version and that it resembles what you had in mind.

Stevekin.
