Nice work IAH. Very sharp. Great colour.


I'm in Canada. Isn't that weird!

Very nice and puzzling at the same time!?

The outer building appear to be dead straight vertically yet the inside building appear to be leaning back wards ever so slightly?

Was this shot on tripod, level left to right and front to back or were some perspective corrections done in post?

Cheers!

It was taken on a tripod. It had to apply p/c on the right side. It looks like there is a hint of distortion. Here's the revised version.

I played with the liquify tool in PS and that seemed to nudge the buildings in the middle a bit closer towards true...

To me, that looks worse. The right edge of the building just to the left of 55 West Wacker has serious pincushion distortion. Also, the lines on the facade of 55 West Wacker seem to bulge out in a slight s-shape near the bottom.

Yeah, I agree. My attempt wasn't a perfect one...more so just to give you an idea of what might be done with lots of patience and time to really tweak it. Hope you don't mind.

Cheers!

No, I don't mind. I appreciate criticism. How else can you improve if you aren't aware of what you're doing wrong? :cheers:

Is the distortion at the bottom of the image bugging you?

^^I love that second shot of the train tracks and buildings in the distance! Perfect exposure and bang on perspective!

Good stuff, Kevin! ;)

Cheers!

Thanks. I sent the lens back to B&H today. Hopefully, they'll accept the return, and I can order the 17 TSE. I wish I could keep the 24 TSE.

Is there a decent source on the net or in print that covers using a tilt and shift lens? Or is it going to be all about trial and error?

I found a few sites but there really is not much information out there.

I guess it's all going to be hands on works. I really need to get out with this lens. Hmm....I just came up with something. * evil smirk*

PS: They do not have smileys for that do they? Oh. :twisted: will do nicely.

Hands on trial and error would probably be the most effective learning tool, though I assume there's probably tons of learning resources out there...I never bothered with any of that, though. ;)

Cheers!

That's what's going with me atm. I'm still learning how to tilt and shift this lens to find out different ways to be creative. Once I get it down, I'll be posting some pics soon. :)
