All Saints, Blackheath #2

This is the next shot in my series on the lovely church in Blackheath. I don't have a slant in this one guys, even though it was deliberate in yesterday's image.

Update: Seeing as there's been an issue with perspective, I've decided to show you the shot in a more correct perspective. See it here.

Guys don't try to understand the above code. Alakija does smile.
Jide Alakija: Yup but you missed the inclusion of C1Pro and photoshop! wink

Needs some perspective correction mate. Like the lighting better than yesterday's
Jide Alakija: If that was what I was going for I would have done a perspective correction but I wasn't.

Question: I read through all the comments and they are all positive for the picture, except Stan that reckons some perspective correction would be in order.

When I take pictures of buildings on wide angle they also can have this 'falling in on each other' type of appearance.

So when is it acceptable and when not?
Jide Alakija: Louis, Stan's comment is not negative but more what he would have liked to see. I took this image well aware of the perspective issue and I could have corrected it if I wanted to, however I liked the perspective and wanted to make it my own style. This building can be photographed properly if you use a tilt shift lens or I took it from about 15ft higher than I did.

It's all a matter of preference!
Lovely shot - like the lighting.
We call this frog-perpective. I don't know here how they call it, but I like it. It's different. If the perpective would be corrected, this picture wouldn't be so interesting. IMO.

you need a tilt shift lens
Jide Alakija: I take it that you didn't read the description!
