It's not just the colour and sharpness, David, it's the lack of distortion. Those verticals needed no straightening at all! It was very well repaired and is as good as new. Thanks for your kindness.
Best wishes,

Andrew

Thanks Andrew, I am just very glad it is getting used by someone who can make it sing! You've hit the nail on the head for me, the lack of distortion is one of the reasons I use this lens so much. I think we're going to see some great shots from you with this!

All the above and -You might have been tempted to convert the image to B and W, if you were I'm happy you didn't. Cropped perfectly and superbly lit. A pictorial final test of Geometric Shapes. Thanks, tg

This is a lovely little corner study. Simple structures breed amazing imaginations.
