    Very difficult to do; if I may make a suggestion - try to keep the camera back vertical.

    I also shoot without a viewfinder but I use a bubble level in the hotshoe to keep the verticals vertical. You can always correct in PP. I hope you don't mind but I did a quick edit in PhotoShop for the verticals, and removing the drainage covers (?), but I did not change the slight color shift in the corners. Roger

    Hello Scargos2,
    Great image of Frank Lloyd Wright home! The beauty of Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture is timeless. Attached is a Street Scape image using my little G1 + Summicron 35mm + Rayqual adapter. Best regards, Leica 77

    Orvieto. 2x3 stitch. 24mm Elmar. The space in front of the Duomo is tight so very wide is required.

    Nicely done. I've been there several times and know how difficult that is.

    Re: ARCHITECTURE & WIDE ANGLE LENSES

    Schneider-Kreuznach is a lens maker, they have been making an excellent series of wide angle lenses for ages -- they are called super angulons. Most are symmetrical, non-retrofocus wide angles. They have almost no distortion, but significant amounts of vignetting. They made lenses for Leica (both R and M)...they are 21mm in 35mm cameras. The one people are probably talking about here is the Leica 21mm super angulon for the M camera.

    Re: ARCHITECTURE & WIDE ANGLE LENSES

    Loyd, It is definitely a b&w type of picture and the grain also helps to soften it.

    For me it makes it more abstract and still the positive-neg tension between the two shapes is very strong.

    Here is one with Zeiss 25mm...not really architecture, but it keeps lines straight!
    The lighting captured is simply incredible!

    Thanks everyone. I appreciate your appreciation.

    (Helen, that color version is pretty much straight out of the camera. The blue is a nice (in this case) side effect of not using a coded or UV/IR filtered 15 superwide. Serendipity at work.)
