    seriously how wrong could the forecast be. it said clear sky's over merseyside tonight, with that in mind i had a shot ive been planning for a while. i wanted the Liverpool skyline with the belt of venus behind it. the forecast look promising so i set off. shortly after coming out of the wallasey tunnel it started raining....hummmmmm.

    i was less than a mile from my locations when a huge rainbow appeared and i was stuck behind a L driver, the light was unbelievable i was swearing cursing as i pulled into the car park grabbed my gear in the down pour ran to my spot and then this storm just appeared over Liverpool's skyline.

    pretty spectacular to watch a storm develop in front of you. what a show!

    Agreed, and you rendered the dramatic of the situation
    pretty well. (y)

    Maybe you could neutralize the "not at horizon" effect of
    the lens… and that would complete the shot beautifully.

    Don't worry, we once were all! :cool:

    Because your lens was not "at horizon", the outer
    structures look like they're falling in. This effect may
    corrected using the keystone tool.

    And maybe the horizon too could be tweaked.

    If the horizon is correct, not taking about the shore line, buildings
    to the right and left of the scene would appear to have the same
    "fall in" toward the centre. In your image, the left side is more af-
    fected.


    Conclusion: both the keystone and the horizon need tweaking!

    Here is a suggestion… as your edit says "yes":

    There are several ways to explain this
    1. these operations come with an image pixel cost
      so the image looks closer
    2. since things are strait, emotionally and visually,
      the approach for the brain is easier and gives the
      feeling to jump right in.
    Pretty much the same way everywhere in the software
    world. Best is to refer to your software tutorials.

    Nice capture Danny.
    I agree about the slight keystoning.
    I'm not sure how all software works, but mine (PSE13) is sacrificial, using some of the edge cut-off, allowing the straightening to operate.
    Maybe the reason it appears closer, is that a thin sliver of each edge has been lost to permit the straightening?

    It's a cracking image but agree with the keystoning. Pretty easy in Lightroom and Photoshop. You only need to draw a couple of lines at the side of the image along the straight lines of teh buildings and it will sort it out. Do the lens correction while you are at it if you haven't done so already. I think you may have got a better image with the storm than the stars and it has something for everyone in it, nature, manmade, power and beauty and the monotone of the building against the colour of the sky. Love it.

    Well done Danny!
    I know you will not forget that tool, ever! :cool:

    One more thing:
    Are these fingerprints on the 17th floor and 6th
    window left of the 4th building? :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
