    Could you tell us what it was you wanted to achieve with the image?

    I don't see a main point of interest in the picture. It is a record of a hotel lobby, but what was it in particular that made you take the photograph?

    I'd like to know as well. It records a memory of the space (nothing wrong with that!) but is one of those shots that also trys to capture everything rather than focus on a singular impact.

    Beside the decoration and to record the moment; I was practicing how the perspective increase when space is shot from top to bottom, also the vertical elements should be seem vertical then how I held the camera to maintain vertical elements was mine take away.

    Thank you, Javier.

    Obviously the picture provides a record for you of your visit to the hotel.

    And it also does provide a good opportunity to practice and learn about perspective. The important thing is for you to carefully note how you held the camera (was it level; was it sloping upwards or downwards?) to not analyse the effect that that had on how the image turned out.

    Hi Javier,

    Original;
    Hotel lobby
    With perspective correction to correct downward angle;
    Hotel lobby
    ... is that more as you remember it?

    Hit F11 (to full screen browser), then click image and toggle Next/Previous to flick between them.

    Cheers,
