    Lightning Pole:

    Yes I know, the vignetting in the top left corner is crap.
    I could not wonder when the wind is going to break the top of this lightning pole off due to metal fatigue, with disasteourous consequence.

    This pole is high, the highest lightning pole I have yet seen.

    Well seen, Andre. I like the combination of shapes and lines. The symmetical framing works for me. I wonder if a distortion (and the vignetting) could be removed in pp?

    +1 from me Andre. Alternatively, you could just add a vignette to the other side.

    Thanks Greg.

    No, vignetting should not be removed in PP. The "photographer" should have known that a smaller aperture would have removed the vignetting. A smaller aperture would also have rendered the image sharper. Would that not have been better?

    Distortion is part of the effect you get when shooting with wide angle lenses. Should it be removed or should it stay?

    Or maybe I should go back and re-shoot using the correct camera settings?

    Thanks John.

    Well, yes that would have been better but don't be too hard on yourself, Andre.

    That is an interesting question. Sometimes when it is quite minor as in this instance I think it should be corrected if possible. Other times it can be quite pleasing - to my eye, at least.
