    M.Zuiko 40-150mm @82mm. However, my framing was wrong, so I actually stitched three photos together. I wanted to make a square crop, but that was just too narrow to work, so this is as square as it could get.

    I love this too, BUT . . . It seems to be 'leaning' a bit to the right. Am I the only one?

    Thank you all for your comments.

    About the leaning: I framed the photo in Lightroom, so unless the Lightroom gridlines are leaning, the photo really should be straight. I think this is more a kind of optical illusion caused by the remnants of depth in this essentially two-dimensional picture (especially the ridges on the right-hand side of the building).

    Anyway, here's another view of this place, this time as 3D as I could make it:

    I think the leaning effect comes from the building overhanging and the right and the white clouds merging with the white page background. I might be a good exercise to try to add a frame to the image?

    Lovely work.
