    B&W - Abbaye des Châteliers, Ile de Ré

    Hi ALl,

    Just got back from France, where we spent some time on the Ile de Ré. Managed to get a couple of photos in and here's my first of the Abbey Notre Dame.

    C&C greatly welcomed, especially on B&W conversion, which was done in ACR.

    Thank goodness you got there when you did ... I'm sure those sloping walls will collapse any moment now!

    That's why I kept a safe distance!

    Are you suggesting I straighten them? I quite like the effect, personally. Is the geenral concensus that lens correction be used to remove the slopes?

    Cheers,

    Tom

    Mmmm? I probably think that the distortion is too great and could use some correction.

    The use of distortion for creative effect is fine and I don't think everything has to be 'correct'. But, as I say, I think it's maybe so much on this one that it's taking attention away from what is otherwise a very fine image. I do like the conversion.

    So, yes, I'd try a bit of an adjustment just to take that right hand edge back up a bit more towards perpendicular.

    Gorgeous conversion!

    I agree that the distortion is overdone. I hope you have another image with less distortion or that you have enough room to correct the distortion somewhat in this one without losing too much of the clouds.
