Photographer's Note

I have already posted one shot of this building. This photograph has been taken from a slightly different angle.

My main reason for posting another picture, is that I wanted to try converting from RAW using FastStone Image Viewer[freeware]. Andrew [macondo] recently drew my attention to this possibility, which previously I had been unaware of.

FastStone is a very useful way of organising ones photographs - rather like Picasa, but you can do more PP with it. There is now an updated version - 3.5 - of FastStone which is even better.

The RAW conversion is very quick and simple - you don't seem to be able to vary any of the conversion parameters though. This image was converted to TIFF, then PPed in PTLens [to correct wide angle lens distortion and perspective] and PS 7, converted to JPEG, and finally framed and had text added in FastStone.
