  • do you do a perspective adjust on your building and city shots? you must – they always look so straight and completely in perspective.

    you’ll laugh but i do try to correct for perspective sometimes with my building shots but i’m so bad with lines that i usually make things look worse.

    now to the photograph – i like the feeling of density in this – both in the line up of cars and the endless line of buildings.
