Taken to contrast the warmth of the timber & metal colours against the cool of the c. iron.

I like it v. much....

do you?



C&C welcome.

Almost !! I thought it was just me that got critiqued regularly for dodgy straights and horizons - the wood doesn`t work for me I fear but I love the rusty metal and the corrugated iron.

Interesting composition though

Thanks, tozza.

I don't think that if I rotated this anti-clockwise to straighten the vertical timber the horizontal timber would remain so.

With Windows 7 (new), I am without the means to try. Elements 9 is beckoning strongly!

Anyone fancy a go?

Tozza, I meant anyone fancy having a go at rotating it for me?

I had a quick go. It is not just rotated , but a bit skewed as well.

Very interesting subject although I would have gone for a crop just above the lower baton. But that is just my opinion, feel free to ignore me.

Thanks, Oggy!

I rest my case to the extent that, as the horizontal was, as it were, then the vertical couldn't be!

The answer's in the skew!

Thanks again but I don't think I'll lose any sleep over the (lack of???) quality of the original. I still think it's good!

Otherwise more commonly referred to as perspective correction, the software equivelant of tilt 'n shift.

Is the corrugated sheet really grey at the top and blue at the bottom?

It might be nothing to you sir - I`m her dad and I didn`t get her until I was 24 ( I think that was how she arrived.................I`ll check with Joclick ! ).I don`t think Emma & her Vespa would rise to the challenge somehow - all that Police training and self control !!

I do beg your pardon, Tony!

Peter,

I think it's where the "daylight" has crept in under the roof & has shifted the colour temp.

The timber looks warmer at the top as well.

Any theories?

Roger.

Chill out man - it`s a state of mind anyway - I`m ok with the hair for the time being - medication might be a problem though !!!!!

best back at you

Tony
PS I agree about the colour shift

Looks like the wrong colour balance, but it looks better
blue so I'd leave it.

The sun and the weather do two additional things (here in Oz also) - they oxidise the galvanised iron more when it is closer to the ground (it's damper down lower, and exposed to the elements more away from the roof).
The sun and weather do the same to the timber - up near the roof it can often be quite well preserved, whereas down near the ground it will be bleached by the sun and rotted by the damp.
