    Had so much fun with the last post, thought I'd try a second.

    Took these shots a few weeks ago with a Tokina 12-24. The oblique shot was 15mm and f8 in portrait orientation then the bottom 20% or so of the foreground was cropped out, the "elevation" was 12mm, I'm sure f8. Sort of beautiful, clear afternoon light. I initially process in dxo which is magic for fixing lens problems in shots like these.

    This is now a Catholic school on Fifth Avenue and 91st, directly across from the Cooper Hewitt Museum. The school uses the first two buildings, I think the third is the Russian Embassy to the UN? Or maybe just the consulate.

    btw-I'm sure I got rid of the branch on the top right of the oblique shot. Next time I do this, I'm bringing a gardener.

  2. On the 1st, I would tone down the facing of the building. It looks overexposed. Match the exposure & color of the 2nd shot. Also, clone out that leaves on the top right and crop that little black piece off of the lower left-hand corner.

    The 2nd shot needs cropping off the irregular white borders all around. You'd also be cropping part of the roof off as well.

    This is a similar shot from nearby: http://photos.dezmix.com/manhattan/hc5bc128#hc5bc128
