    This is a shot of my local library that is cropped from the original, seen below the first pic. I didn't think the original was very special so I busted out the crop tool. Healthy critiquing is very much encouraged!

    I, too, like it. Bold shapes and lines, good blocks of colour, striking lighting well spotted. Not only clever use of the crop tool, but of the rotation tool as well.

    Have you shown it to the management in the library? They could be looking for good images for the next library leaflet.

    Thanks Radu and Donald! I'd love to have them use some of my shots in one of their leaflets or even on their webpage. I'm going to have to build up the courage and send them a few.

    Hi bleys,

    I do like your first one, and would urge you to make contact with the library.
    You never know, they might lend you a book for nothing

    I wondered about a straightened original.

    Not having seen the original building, I just did it as I thought it looked 'right', but it may look really odd to you (I may have stretched it too far after the transform )

    So, you're another member from British Columbia?

    Wow, after the straightening you've done, the "leaning back" effect of the original has become a lot more apparent to me. I didn't think of trying to straighten it! Nice work.

    I am indeed from British Columbia.
