    It's a couple of degrees off-level in a clockwise direction, easily corrected.

    Is this any good?


    Cropped only, I think.

    I was waiting for a sunset but just took this on the way. I'm no photographer but it looks ok to me

    No, it's Potsdam, Germany. It's near the capital and it has 3 major parks (at least from what I remember) full of castles and suchlike sightseeing. It is very beautiful! Worth a visit ;) I made more photos, if you are interested let me know. I don't mind posting them. They are not as edited as this one

    I've been in Potsdam. :) I lived in Berlin for two years 23 May 1980 - 23rd May 1982, two years to the day, it was my daughter's birthday. I only got to see Potsdam 20 odd years later, couldn't go when the wall was still up. :)

    I quite like this, but it certainly has its problems - quite high ISO (5600) so pretty noisy, then pushed some more, and taken in misty conditions to start with. Anyway, Fountains Abbey, North Yorks.

    It's potentially a nice photo, but you really need to straighten the horizon. I'd also tweak the contrast and colour balance just a touch to emphasise the area that's sunlit. And a crop to a panoramic format might help a bit as well.

    Oh my God, this is one of the best pictures I've ever seen. The place looks very intriguing!

    I'm not bothered by the noise. But I'd crop it, I think there is too much on the left. I might even consider cropping it to a square format.

    it'as a bit underexposed. This is more like it should look (although this is a 2 sec tweak and it could be much better):

    I think this is my best other effort. somebody has entered an "everso cute" picture of his daughter which will win, but here's my 2nd best effort - couldn't get it as flat as I wanted it and agin, probably over 'shopped it. Havana roofscape:

    It'll be a nice shot once it's corrected - about 1° anticlockwise. You might need to sharpen it a little after straightening depending on what anti-aliasing PSE uses.

    Impossible to tell without seeing the original. Nice composition though.

    The receding figure gives the picture lovely depth :thumbs:

    Not so sure about the discarded bra just above the shadow on the left. Might be best to crop that out.
