I really like this one, Drake - very well done.

If I can respectfully suggest a slight straightening of the verticals and a tiny haircut on the bottom...

Hmmm... frustrating how I can upload your photo but not my own... Everybody's a critic these days.

I like how you cropped it , but how did you streighten it up. As you can tell i am not used to shooting without my tripod so i had a few that were a little " tilted "

In Photoshop, there is a "Rotate Canvas" command under the "Image" memu. I selected the "Rotate Arbitrary" setting and set it to 1.5 degrees counter clockwise. Then I cropped.

Don't you use the 'measure tool' to ascertain the exact tilt adjustment needed?

The way I do it is :-

1) Select the measure tool (which is in the same group as the eye dropper (screenshot attached)

2) using the measure tool - draw along a definite horizontal or vertical

3) go to Image/Rotate/Arbitrary .... and you'll find the precise figure has already been entered for you, courtesy of the measure tool which has calculated it from the line you drew.

It's a neat, quick and easy way to straighten a horizon too.

I'm attaching a screenshot of one of my own images as I forgot to save a copy of Shawn's for the screenshot. Super shot though Shawn, well suited to sepia and the post processing .. and I also love the 'Memphis' series. All very fascinating for me as I remember the Luther King shooting and Elvis, of course (wot with me being so ancient). Lol

TBH - I thought it was a tip I'd picked up on ADI from either you, slej or Jamie. Maybe it's one I picked up elsewhere then?

It's a good tool though - takes all the guesswork out of straightening. Big Grin

Wonderful picture Shawn... you really capture in that picture an old mood...

I like your composition and your conversion... I like the dreamy effect you applied, but I think sometimes that dreamy effect doesn't make your picture look old...

I would like to encourage you to try a warmer sepia treatment, without dreamy effect. A bit more contrast and sharp it a bit if needed... I am almost sure you will find a surprise Smile
