Ann, I did not see the original but wow, what a shot. Extremely well done in all respects. Bill

Thank you all so much. I was delighted to find this program. It cost $25 which I thought a bargain. You teach it which lenses you have and it automatically makes adjustments which you can tweak manually if you need. This was its automatic take on my 17-40 lens. I love what it did. The program is called LensFix CI and can be found here:

Ann - I'm almost speechless. Gorgeous!!

Me three on what program you used with the MAC !! I really can't stop looking at this image, Ann. It is mesmerizing!!!!
Helen Betts09-Feb-2008 15:34
Even better now, Ann. I, too, would be interested in knowing what application you used (I have Macs as well) because I do a lot of architectural photography and am constantly struggling with distortion.
Daniel Bollag09-Feb-2008 09:00
dIt's absolutely flawless now, Ann. What Mac application did you use? The one Franky mentioned? (I'd like to check it out on some of my own images...) -- db.

I fixed it. Thanks for the advice. Ann

Just downloaded a Mac program that can fix this. I'm waiting for the key so I can use it on this one. Thanks for the suggestion.

Thank you all. Yes, please, I'd love it if you would try straightening this. BTW, is this a PC only program or would it work on my Mac? I've had many times when I'd have liked such a program.

Excellent effect, Ann. Very abstract-loking reflection.

Superb catch! The composition, the structure with the tiles, the light, the reflection ... just everything!
As for Daniels comment, you get a good correction of any distortion with PTLens. Should also support your lens. Did some great job on my V3 and also R1 images. I have purchased it and can give it a try with your image if you wish.

I love this, Ann: wonderful colours, wonderful composition; well seen! (I just wonder, if I may say so, if one could still improve it with some lens correction software; I think *straight* lines would make the image stronger. I don't know how one does that, but I do know it can be done.) -- db.

Wow, I really like this, Ann! Great find and well captured!

Way cool, Ann!!!!! An incredible image of a very ordinary site!!! Beautifully seen and done.
