You have done well Riju, for the yeti himself to come here & say that.

I presume you did not visit chennai.

No worries, pudhu maapilai (Test your tamil here). I was just wondering that is all. Who would want to meet up with a bunch of petrol & oil smelling, loud mouthed, car crazed BHPians on his newly wed getaway trip ?

Actually it needs more than that, the lens distortion due to intense wide angle also needs to be corrected. Actually that correction will remove the lamp out of the picture.

Samurai adding another pic shot at the same 18mm with the Nikkor 18-135mm lens. I had shot a similar pic last time with my D50 18-55mm kit lens.



The above pic doesn't have that much of a tilt as compared to the pic quoted by e_l. Any thoughts ?

Here you don't have the near end of the altar at the extreme end. So no bending.

Look under Filters menu in PS, I think the option is lens correction under distortion.
