Great plimrn 2007-09-05 5:03

Hi David,
Wow this gives a totally different perspective of Iceland than any shot I've see. I thought it was taken in Los Angeles, right after a rain storm. The symmetry & the graphism makes a strong compo. The contrast between the white church and blue sky is excellent. I it was difficult to avoid the WA skew here as well as you have. Is that the symmetrical POV or did you also use 'tramsform'?
HLJ, Pat

Default To plimrn: No, didn't use transform tool

Hi Pat. This was straight out of the camera. There was a statue right behind me, so I couldn't go back anymore to include enough space around the church to correct the perspective. But the wide angle distortion is not as much as it might appear. I will post a wider shot to the Workshop, and you will see from that the distortion of the shape of the church from the WA lens is fairly minimal. Cheers . . . David

I just had this flash when looking at the compo that a symmetrical shot minimizes the feeling of distortion.

Yes, I think you are right, Pat. In a symmetrical shot the angles are exactly the same on both sides, so you don't get that feeling of distortion. Cheers . . . David
