I posted this a little while back in the Travel section, but would like some feedback for improvement with composition, or pp. I don't have the original RAW files with me at school right now, but I do have the final composition.

Thanks for looking!

I think its a real nice shot, definitely could see it hanging on a wall. Composition is nice, has a nice balance to the photo and the colors are good. My only real gripe is the noise level in the sky, which could be easily handled with some noise reduction software.

I have a bit of a problem with the leaning lighthouse.... I know it is the perspective but with the bridge the combination is just not right. Would not know if you would be able to correct it by stretching the image a bit. I think it got to do with the shooting angle as well.

Pity, because the photo is good: nice colours, sharp, nice light but for that leaning tower.

Agreed, maybe some correction in PS. Other wise its perfect.

How do you correct something like that in PS?

Just a quick edit. Use "Transform => Perspective" - and tug and move the various point until it looks a bit straighter. Now the top of the lighthouse is not quite level... and the lighthouse may be a little thicker than before. If you spend some more time on it it might een improve more. You loose some of the image because it is no longer a rectangle and you have to crop it back in shape.

It will look better with playing but the above version now looks like the bridge is tilting :)

Thanks for all the comments guys! Who says that the old kit lens can't do justice? :p I never thought about doing that correction in photoshop, I'll have to look into it once I get hold of my original RAW files at home. It might be just me, but I might just prefer the WA look that the distortion provides.

I think the wide angle distortion is what it is and in this instance its okay. Something about the way the bridge changes in the correction bothers me. I like it better as first presented. Excellent shot.
