    Thanks Kyle, fixing some distortion and retaining the structure is the challenge here. I see your approach is not unlike mine.

    Here is mine, done prior to seeing Kyles, but very similar.

    Hmmm, I am liking Kyle's, all except for the clipping of the arch. :eek:

    I don't like the clipping, but there's no headroom above it and preferred to clip it vs. the distortion

    Very nice gentlemen!

    I would like to know how Kyle removed the two guys on the right so well. Every time I tried, I was left with artifacts. I only know enough about photoshop to be dangerous. I need to up my game.

    I used the lasso to select them and then content aware fill to remove them. My effort really only works for these fairly low resolution images. One of them has some weirdness that I'd need to clone out if I was truly serious

    Kyle - That's really interesting. I just used the content aware tool, without making a selection. Thanks for the explanation.

    Okay here is mine. I changed the sky a bit, and moved one of the people. I liked the idea of having scale, but didn't care for the positioning of the people.

    Nice job of straightening it. I did all mine in ACR, I think you must have used the warp tool in ACR or one of those perspective tools which I use so seldom I never remember the name or where it's located.

    Thanks Ben. I never even looked to see if ACR has a warp tool, this from inside Photoshop.

    The Warp tool is probably in the Top 5 of the most powerful tools in Photoshop in my opinion. Especially as I shoot WA so much, being able to straighten things without losing so much of the photo like will happen with the Lens Correction tool is very important.

    Yep Jim, I always shoot from a leveled camera so I seldom need it, thus I forget how to use it.

    Nice one Amy! I think I like this crop the best, though maybe I am a little biased on the crop. :)

    Very good straightening and crop, and I really like the processing.
