Taken tonight. One of the longest bridges in Europe at the Great Belt.

Should I correct for wide angle perspective distortion?

With distortion:







Corrected:







Any other comments also very welcome.

Hi Brian,
Corrected or not, you got a winner here. The blurry waters lead the eye to the distance. Very nice comp.
I like the correction when I look at the bridge (top right) but on the left side, it's not necessary and it actually removes a nice part of the image (bottom left)
Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the comments, Fred.
Perhaps the straightening was a little brutal. I will try something more subtle (and local)
for my next go, or perhaps just get that 17mm T/S I have been trying to convince myself
I need for the last few years.

If you hadn't shown the corrected one I still would've really liked the uncorrected one. However having both together and I say the corrected one works better for me

Corrected version for me, Brian. Wonderful image. Really like the perspective on this.

Cheers,

Lovely.... I really love how there are two things competing to draw your eye into the distance: the bridge, and the more rickety looking thing (net?)

Corrected version for me.

Hey Brian,

What a cool looking shot! I like this, as to the WA distortion, you might want to try the Warp tool to pull down just the one side to straighten it out. By using that, it's a bit more work, but then you won't lose any of the shot.

Love the shot. I prefer the distortion-corrected version, FWIW.

I quite like this image, the stormy waves in the mid-half of the image really add to the composition, to be honest I did not even glance at the bridge.

Hi Brian,

I like the great sense of motion you've got here. It makes an interesting contrast with the bridge and the nets. This is a very striking image.

Thanks very much for the comments, guys.

Jim: I thought there must be something that could make the adjustment locally, I don't have photoshop (which I am guessing you are referring to) but I guess that pixelmator has something similar. I'll look into it. I really like the bottom left corner in the original so I think I would really like the best of both worlds, a straight bridge and the rest of the picture as-is.

Regards,
Brian

Super image, Brian - love the sense of movement and the colours and light are spot on. In an ideal world it would be nice to get the bridge a little more vertical but not sure how you'd go about it as suggested without photoshop - maybe get someone who has it to do so if your software won't?
You would love the 17TSE by the way - it's a brilliant lens - clearly you have proved your need for it now ;-)

Thanks very much for your nice comment, Lizzie. I really appreciate it.
I *know* I would love the 17 ts-e, the cost is the "only" thing holding me back.

corrected is better IMO, but either work well for the shot.

IMO, the diff between the original and the corrected versions are so minimal as to be inconsequential. The kind of thing a *few* photographers might immediately notice, but likely nobody else would give a hoot.

It's such a nice image that I doubt many would have any concerns.

Of course, if you blew it up to 8'x6', maybe then it would stand out a bit more.

Thanks for the comments David, rt and Fo.

Fo: I guess the leaning bridge just helps to establish the wind direction.
