Default I'm a wide kinda guy.

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...26&key=4143651

I don't have any mid range lenses, just my 70-200L and my 10-22. I sacrificed my play money for flashes instead of lenses. Is the distortion really that bad? For going as wide as I did I thought I pretty much got the leveling down on this one. I sent an appeal in, just seeing what you guys think about it. Obviously the loco is leaning, but it's leaning into a curve right here, a pretty long and sharp one too. Which I also explained in the appeal.

Well, the right edge looks vertical or close to it, and the left edge is tilted. So a bit of CW is warranted. Get the window frames on each side to have roughly the same angle, of course pointing away from center as you go up.

Or do perspective adjustment and make the veritcals vertical on both sides. That will require CW also, of course.

If you can, recrop and remove some of the bottom. I don't think we need to see the up close and personal on the weeds lower right.

And maybe not so bright on the station on the left.

No. A bit cropped in. The reason why I go wider than usual is sometimes the triggers don't like to fire when I tell them too, haha. More often than not is user error. . So at least I'll get a shot off of the lead SOMEWHERE in the photo. Still kinda new to this, but we're getting the hang of it

This is a good example of a photo with wide angle distortion that is very easy to correct. No excuse not to, Ben.

Are you going to judge me when I say I don't know how? I might cry over the criticism.

First time for everything, Ben! I'm a PSE guy, where it is something like
\Image\Transform\Perspective

also \Filter\Correct Camera Distortion
