A lot to this one - it draws me into it.

It's just the architectural photographer in me, but the converging verticals of the buildings bother my eyes. :) Great composition again, Aguinaldo.

The entire shot shows considerable wide-angle lens distortion, even close to the centre.

This will be difficult if not impossible to correct fully in post..

Not really. In Lightroom there is a section to apply a lens profile which should correct the distortion. I'd probably also do some manual guided keystoning corrections just on the buildings.

The distortion is because of the wide-angle and Aguinaldo chose to shoot the buildings head-on which exaggerates the effect. I guess he had his reasons for that but yes it introduces heavy distortion. The effect could have been much reduced by shooting from an angle at the houses e.g. the photographer standing on the patch of grass in the lower left or right corner.

Thank you for the critique guys.

Sometimes I'm overwhelmed by color and forget about shape. In fact heavy distortion is always present in my photography because it does not bother me very much.

Here's a (almost) corrected version.

Second one is much preferred by me.

Interesting that this was shot with Z series on an S type lens .. distortion correction is applied automatically even to the RAW files unless you go in deep to turn it off, IIRC. Having a 14-24 G I know how distorted things can get, but I find the original has the chapel tilted, which bothers me as the title pushes us to it .. if it was titled the Maypole I'd be fine !

 

But hey, what do i know ?  cheers, Maurice

The automatic distortion correction was on, but I think this perspective distortion is out of its abilities.
