My Year in Photos 2012
I’d say that these guys are “motorized”. This is rumored to be the safest block in Manhattan to live on. I had a hard time straightening this photo. Any line I chose to use the straighten tool on, threw another line out of whack.
Might be a really safe place to live, but most probably the noisiest. Vrooom…….Vrooom…..
You brave girl, you! There is no way I’d photograph a Hell’s Angel’s house up here. No way.
the things I do for “you people” 🙂
Your a braver man than I am Gunga Dhin! As for the straightening, – No one saod anything about the Angels was straight.
I don’t think the Hell’s Angels would want their photo to be neatly aligned. You’ve captured the spirit of the place, and that’s the point!
Your treatment is perfect for the photo Gisele. I think Big Vinny would approve.
there is a panel “no parking” but no one “no pictures”! I think it like Bobbie: You captured the spirit of the place …
I love it. Appeals to my anarchic youth.
BTW, over here our ‘Bikers’ do a lot on the quiet for charity.
Ah…..now I understand someone’s comment on Steven’s blog about moving in next door to a motorcycle gang for safety.
Great colors. I feel your pain with the straighten tool…never quite seems to work for me, either!
I like the straighten tool, but I actually think the building is a bit lopsided. So, if I straighten according to the brick lines, the building is off. If I use the stairs or another part of the building, the bricks are off. Meh. Y’all get the gist of the photo anyway 🙂 n
What a cool shot! The dark, foreboding door with the colors within are very dramatic, not to mention the subject matter. Top notch, crooked and all!
Linear distortion is challenging but who is looking at the bricks! Holy Scish ca bob what an entrance! Powerful image.
I really, really love that door. You go, girl!!!
I agree with Julie, pretty brave.
Do you have a bodyguard with you when you go on your photowalks??You are a brave soul. I think the un-straightness really fits the subject as they don’t really toe a straight and narrow line either. Nice work.
What a great door and shot. We all thank you!
I don’t have elements but in full photoshop if you use filter > distort > lens correction you can use the transform vertical and horizontal perspective sliders. I don’t know either if the crop tool in elements has a perspective option, that can work.
thanks, Ellen. I haven’t tried that tool yet. I’ll give it a shot.
a massive entrance that I never would dare to use. Don’t think I would dare to take a photo like this either. Happy you did so you could show us. I think you made a good choice as of what line should be staright
