    Winter Blahs

    There hasn't been any fresh snow in a week and even the lighting has been poor so I haven't been out with the camera for a week. Last week I took a bunch of shots over on the coast in less than ideal conditions and came home nearly empty handed.

    With time on my hands this weekend I worked on one of the shots that I thought had compositional potential. Well, it's an improvement. Comments?

    Nice image -- I like the color that you have enhanced. Has a lot of interesting things to look at. However, one thing that you didn't do is straighten all those leaning power poles and the water tower.

    This is strange. I agree in the 'worked on' image the tower looks like it is leaning to the right. But I don't see it in the 'as shot' image. I didn't straighten the image as I thought it was correct, based on the horizon. I double checked this and in fact, the tower is straight or at least within a half degree. I think it's an optical illusion due to the fact that the poles are clearly leaning. But if I straightend them the horizon will be off.

    Hi Homer,
    I think your horizon is off a little too. The actual horizon is obscured by those bushes that cover the left third of the horizon line. Try rotating the image 0.9 or 1 degree to the left and see what you think. With this rotation the tower looks straight and the poles are straight.
