Needs Improvement danielswalsh 2008-04-24 5:08

Hi Ernesto;

Forgive my honesty- but I'm being truthful..

My first opinion of this image upon looking at it full sized is- 'badly processed'. The point at where the sky meets the building shows VERY visible signs of PP work.The key to ANY PP work Ernesto is that it should be un-detectable.

The second thing that is quite evident in this shot does not involve PP work- it's 'keystoning'. Keystoning is where buildings look be be falling in or away. The building on the left- we both know is perfectly vertical (or I'm sure it would have fallen down), yet in the image it looks to be falling to the right. It takes some practice but it can be fixed in Photoshop using 'Lens Correction' and it makes the difference between 'happy snappy photographer' and 'pro'.

Hope this info helps you...

No offense, but a happy snappy Photoshopper is not any different than a happy snappy photographer. Not a great pic, but disguising it with Photoshop doesn't make you a "pro" photographer.

I think you missed what I'm saying Hisham...
I fully agree with you that Photoshop should not be the crutch of Photography.

However, correcting keystoning is a VERY common practice among architectural photographers. Using lens correction in Photoshop is hardly 'disguising' anything.
I'm not saying that correcting the keystoning would make this a 'pro' shot, however it's one of the tools that pro's do use.

All the best,
- Dan
