The rotation seems correct, I fixed the perspective but there is still something that sets off about this picture. It just feels... off.

If you figure it out, please let me know what it is, so I can fix it!


Also, other than that, any and all C&C is definitely appreciated!

Checking the before and after I am not seeing much of a difference. It appears to be leaning a bit to the right. This is most noticeable at the top of the photograph. It's almost like the tower is bending....


2 Samuel 9:7-8, "So David said to him, “Do not fear, for I will surely show you kindness for Jonathan your father’s sake, and will restore to you all the land of Saul your grandfather; and you shall eat bread at my table continually.” Then he bowed himself, and said, “What is your servant, that you should look upon such a dead dog as I?”

It's a neat photo. Lovely church. I assume the color is intentional? It's got a very strong grey-tone. (Little green in the trees, for example.)

To my eyes the original is better, before you "fixed the perspective."

It just needs to rotate slightly counter-clockwise to balance out the composition. The tower is near vertical but the angle of the roof on the church is making the image feel right heavy.

Rule of thirds? If you are going for the symmetrical look, make sure its balanced. seems kind of heavy on the right side.

Two sides of the tower compete with each other, and the building to the right and the forest/gazebo to the left doesnt really help.

Colours/shades blend towards the bottom left kinda smearing the tower with the trees

In the first (corrected) image, the tower looks too broad & top heavy. I definitely like the original image better...............t​w
