What you need are lenses, more lenses, bigger lenses, better lenses, faster lenses, vintage lenses and when you have these, your pictures will be perfect!

I do like it, colourful and well presented.

As much as I appreciate the (very familiar) view it tends to highlight one of the reasons why I don't like frames. Frames can accentuate the positive aspects of a photo but if the photo is that good it doesn't need to be framed, in my opinion. Conversely, it can accentuate the negative aspects and this shot needs a very small twist to the left to complete it. Couple of seconds work!
Hope you took the footpath on the right hand side through the tunnel to the shed?

I am not sure what you see but I came to the conclusion that you must be using the road crossover as a guide. The verticals are vertical as they should be so I am more than happy.
I have to disagree with you regarding frames. In my opinion a photograph without a frame is not finished.
Yes I went into the shed and the yard beyond and got very wet in the process as the heavens opened and there was nowhere to go!

Thanks to everyone for their comments.

My first impression was that it was a very pretty shot (worth viewing big), but that it needed rotating anti-clockwise.
Verticals are not a good reference for level as they converge, so it depends where you crop the image.
The main sign post thingie is your best reference; the uprights need to converge (about the vertical centre), so neither would be vertical and the horizontal part of the sign should be level (or more level).
That's just my opinion as a technical illustrator and someone who instantly sees wonkyness first
I don't know the area.
Hope that helps.

Thank you for your input Mark. I think you may need to supply some sketches to illustrate your point.
In this particular shot the VP would be so far above the EP to make vertical convergence meaningless.
Thanks again your comments make for a more interesting forum
