    This is the lock lengthman's hut, circular in design and, to me, quite unique.

    It was being carefully restored by a 'Friend of Chester Canal'.

    As explained in my critique, this isn't a crop so much as a filling the original frame with less of the original photograph. I also cloned away the wire above the lady's head.

    What do you think?

    This is The Blue Peter, photographed between two cottages, from the opposite side of the harbour.

    You will be able to see how many gulls descend onto the mud at low tide!

    Hi John,

    You may know how to remove lens distortion but just in case, here is what I did.

    Using PSE10, I clicked on the rectangular marker tool.
    Then I right clicked on the image to bring up free transform.
    I right clicked again to select distort.
    Then, using the arrows on the corners, it is possible to correct distortions.

    I hope you can follow this.

    Best wishes,
    Bev :-)

    Hi Rosemary,

    After our discussion, I've done a very quick workshop for you.

    First of all, in Elements, I did Image > Rotate > Custom and rotated the image 0.6 counterclockwise so that the left vertical "edge" of the tunnel was indeed vertical. Then I did Image > Transform > Distort and "pulled up" the bottom right corner - that seemed to level the roadway pretty well, especially looking into the distance. Then Layer > Flatten Image. Then, because I'd "lost" a little with the rotation and transformation, I cropped it just a tad all around and that seemed to be successful in bringing those "lines" into the bottom corners pretty effectively too.

    So there you go. See what you think!

    Kindest Regards,

    John.

    The Levels histogram proved that the highlights and shadows were 255 and 0 respectively (i.e. there were no details in areas that were pure white or black). I used the white- and black-point eyedroppers set to 96% white and 4% black respectively to slightly reduce the contrast, and now I think it's possible to see a little more detail in the foreground dark areas. I then selected the middle area (mountains) and increased the contrast there using Brightness/Contast dialogue box. Finally I tried to reduce the noise (particularly the colour noise) using Noise Reduction and Despeckle. Changes are only subtle, so I hope you won't object or feel that I've interfered too much.

    Hello Ihsan,

    Using PSE10, I simply removed the colour cast.
    I hope you like the result.
