It's much better, but there now seems to be a slight curve in the bottom of the painting. It's not much, but it's there...

I have finally edited the picture using the Skew tool and hope it looks better. Thank you all for your input as I was not really aware of many of the tools in PS Elements. CJ

Which version of PSE do you have CJ, I have PSE 4. It's really easy to straighten it (if you elect to) --- aam1234

This is wonderful, CJ, but I'm looking forward to seeing it after straightening. You can do it!

Thanks everyone, for your comments and suggestions.
Traveller, I have PS Elements and I'll see if the fix that you mentioned is available. I'm not the best at PP so that in itself will be a challenge! :-) CJ

CJ - I agree with Chris here, the slight skew I find very distracting, but Traveller's solution should work very well.
Give it a go - I think it will make a huge difference.
I very much like the simple text, too.

Compliments... the silhouette and frame works well together, in my opinion. And the colours are lovely. Regards ~jnconradie

Really really nice CJ. Good work --- aam1234

Actually, CJ, I think that this is easily fixable...meaning the off kilter a little. If you have PS, go rectangle tool> cover whole image from gallery, > edit>transform>Skew or Distort, depending on your preference.

I tried it with your image, and it worked pretty well. Just an idea for this fabulous capture. Sometimee we don't know even what tools are available to us...I worked on this because it is something I don't use often enough myself.

Best Wishes, Traveller

I really like this photograph CJ. The fabulous colours in the painting along with the silhouetted lady contemplating the art, really is a lovely shot.

Cheers, Vikas.

I agree with Chris also, but feel it does not detract too much from the wonderful capture.

This is a good example of how to use someone elses work and call it your own.

I agree Chris, and if this weren't a geometric painting it probably wouldn't be so noticable, but this was the best I could do handheld with a very large painting in a public place! CJ

This is a nice image, but it bugs me that you shot it at an angle, I personally think it would have been really nice to have everything squared up.
