Hey folks,

My recent trip to Liverpool yielded about 3000 images (fantastic town BTW) and I am in need of feedback (to my family, bless them, they are all brilliant lol).

I am interested in the community's opinion as to which of the following is "best" and why. I understand many are loathe to apply PP, but I have become fascinated with the 'lomo' look and feel (just not enough to give up digital). While some of the following are likely far too heavily PP, I have a feeling I might be onto something with one of them and am very curious to get the unbiased view of others.

Thanks very much indeed for all your comments!

If I had to choose I would choose the original, the rest are way to busy with the pp.

I prefer the original but with better post process - it needs an exposure adjust for white and gray.
Would also add local contrast adjustment and sharpen.

Original, the verticals on the sides are killing me though!

OK guys thanks. Actually, the photo is perfectly square according to my ruler? I checked the line at the bottom and the windows in the middle. Perhaps they did not make the building so square in 1855? Lens distortion? Not sure.

I dont think its is lens distortion as much as it is perspective.

Original, every time. The PP'd versions just don't do the building justice. Lots of blown detail, especially in the 1855 brick work. The photo is certainly straight as an arrow (i just use the top of my viewing pane to check ;) ) and the perspective definitely toys with the brain. I like that! I would suggest a little fill light and if you want to, boosting the contrast/clarity/vibra​nce a bit for a more grungier look

Original, with a little more exposure.
In all of the edits, the brickwork has the appearance of upholstry fabric.

Many thanks again!

I was much more subtle with this one. Better?

Way better but could still use some exposure adjustment esp at the bottom - it is very dark. Use levels and check histogram.....way towards blacks.

I'd say it's a tie between your latest and the original, not to make it too difficult here :)
