    Was walking around downtown taking pictures of Disney Concert Hall, when this one caught my eye. It is not the Disney Hall, but one of the other three theaters.

    What I'm viewing was built in 1967. Your comments are very welcomed.

    Hi Bob,

    You might want to check the black point on this, the histogram shows an awful lots of space on the left.

    which explains the odd grey look more noticeable at the top of frame.

    It is almost straight on the left, but the right is leaning, so a bit of rotation and perspective correction would help.

    Composition is ok, but perhaps a figure for human interest?

    HTH,

    Wow, I really should get in more of a habit of checking that. Thank you, here is a better histogram and yes it does make a difference. I'll have to work with the perspective. I straightened up the pillars be the most pronounced and did some different work with the right side, but I was not happy with what it was doing overall. I'll have to play with that for a while. Thank you Dave.

    OK, so my question is now, if I use the perspective to straighten up the right side, do I have to live with the left side (column) or is there a way to do both?

    Sorry to keep posting more, when done I will delete the previous versions. I found by using "skew" I can fix the opposite side.
