    Real great picture. I never thought I would like the real wide angle application, but this looks great and much better than just stitching 20 mm shots. Simply a very, very good application of this wide angle lens.
    - Hmm, can't thing of advice to improve further at this point in time :mad:

    That's a really beautiful photograph. It worked in color, it works in B&W. It just works!

    Nice shot. For such a wide lens, what kind of correction did the software make, if any? Curious to see differences, if there are any.

    Wow, I'm with Ray 100%!
    You ought to print this one or have it on a really nice digital 8 x 10 frame.

    Stunning, Raf. :bravo-009:

    This pic was shot in RAW (as all my pics are). The software did not apply any corrections. I did carefully hold the camera horizontally to avoid fleeding lines in the perspective.

    Further postprocessing implied conversion to B/W with an IR algoritm, sepia toning, some contrast enhancement, and some local tonal corrections. All with Corel Paintshop Pro Photo X2.

    I hope this answers your question.

    my oh my!

    My goodness that’s beautiful! I don’t know what process brought it to this but I wish I could manage results like that! Just a fantastic rendition of a moment in that place at that time.
    What program was used to convert from RAW if you don't mind my asking?

    Hi, Pap,

    the RAW conversion was done using Silkypix.
    But, the B/W conversion was in Corel Paintshop Pro Photo X2

    Did you have to correct the shot for converging vertical lines?

    Very little, if any, BD, because I was careful to hold the camera horizontal in both dimensions while shooting.
