    Lifeguard shack and sky

    Good tonal range, and an interesting building. I'm surprised it leans so much with a 20mm lens. Was that deliberate?

    Nice one, eNo. The light on the shack lifts it beautifully.

    That would be distortion from the 20mm. In retrospect, I wish I had taken this with the 17-35. I'm not happy at all with the distortion the 20mm brings out on FX (check out the horizon line in this shot).

    Hi eNo,

    Nice sky, but I have to say the shack's distortion ruins it for me.

    Can it be "pulled straight" in Photoshop?

    Cheers,

    Yes, it can, but for me, it robs the image of a certain dynamic element, though I admit this isn't the best distortion correction job.

    In my opinion doing this correction You ruined the image.An 20mm lens always distorts.Doing conscious or not this distortion, in the first image, this cottage is pressed by the greatness of the sky and that is a natural and real sitation.In the fight between sky and cottage the cottage will be never the winner.

    I think this is absolutely fantastic, the sea bends to the left of the image, is that distortion. We don't see things like that around here although if memory serves me right there are some built structures on beaches in Cornwall, but they could be shops.

    Haven't been on holiday for 20 years so I don't know with surfing things might have changed, very nice place and inviting. cheers
