    Perspective Correction of St George

    Hi all,

    What's the most extreme pc anyone has ever done? I did this quick easy one recently and I am quite pleased with the result.

    Hi Karl!

    Nice shot.
    But why do you cropped it?
    I appreciate the original version ( not on standing on the feet)

    If the perspective was going the other way I would probably have left it alone. As it is I see your dilemma.

    Possibly, I would have the inscription beneath his feet. Or alternatively cropped it out totally.

    Good bright colours; it has worked out well.

    Hi Karl,

    I agree with Geoff, I found myself trying to read the inscription upside down

    He's right about the colours too.

    Fairly certain it beats my best before and after

    Hi Brigitte,

    When you perform perspective correction on an image (so converging lines become parallel again) the image ends up being a trapezioid shape (not sure if I spelt that correctly) - so one needs to crop it to return the image to a rectangular form factor again

    Dear Colin!


    As beginner I haven´t been aware of this....
    Thanks much for the explanation.


    The colours are really good...

    Thanks guys,

    I should have included more of the text but ommited most of it from the original. I just left auto crop on and let it do its business. It was quite a large First World War memorial which was removed from its original position (the building was demolished - shame) and was on the floor in a salvage yard. I used a polariser to bring out the colours of the beautiful mother of pearl and gold leaf.

    Thanks for you nice comments,

    Best wishes,

    Karl

    Thanks Dave,

    Your shots are great, I love playing around with persepctive correction, I like to see how far I can push it.

    Cheers,
