Love this. 15mm and no distortion; what are you using to get it so straight? Love it.

@Luis A. De Jesus R.: Thanks Luis!....I use a programme called "PTLens": http://epaperpress.com/ptlens/ It's intuitive to use and is excellent for automatically removing lens distortion as well as for correcting perspective distortion.

It works either as a stand alone programme or as a Photoshop plug-in.

I've been telling other photographers about how great it is for the last 2 years and I see that epaperpress now provide a link to one of my testimonials! (I've got no financial or other ties to the company by the way!)

Ian Smith from London, United Kingdom

Another excellent photo Ian - but I'm curious to know about the two light sources? it seems the shadowsw on the left and right are from different sources? (It may just be me :-)

24 Mar 2010 1:44pm

@Ian Smith: Hi Ian,

The sun was directly behind me shining though a row of trees at the top of an embankment. I cropped the frame across the bottom to exclude my own shadow. The perspective distortion is extreme using this 10-20 lens (remember it's almost like a fisheye lens!) so the shadows are all pointing to the vanishing point of the exaggerated perspective.

ARTURO LOPEZ from Toronto, Canada

Excellent shot and compo!!! And thanks for the PTlens information.

perfect composition - i like the great balance and symmetry you achieve in your photos and this is a great example! i also use PTLens and thoroughly recommend it for very easy distortion correction!
