I'm not shure, but maybe this kind of picture theme needs an absolute perfect alignment (tripod?) and also a correction of lens distortion.?Great light!
Martin,I'd definitely remove the barrel distortion (known problem with this compact wide lens) before making a print, but didn't feel like bothering at 5:30 this morning before running out to shoot spring flowering trees. Maybe I'll do a compare/contrast later.
...the barrel distortion is all that bothers me here: as I expected I actually like the misalignment. Maybe because I do so much view camera work with everything perfectly aligned, when using a hand camera I tend to explore alternates to that highly formal approach.
Working with a grid viewing screen in my dslr, I notice that I frequently have the tendency to look for a proper alignment.But as you say, Carl, this could easily end in a boring point of view.
