Very nice, Bob. There's just something about the architecture of older buildings that appeals to me.... and many others, I think. Maybe it's character, or a reminder of simpler times or just the beauty of the designs. Whatever it is, the homes and buildings designed and built before the 1940's seem to have it....... especially the Victorian and Edwardian period homes.
The next-to-last home with the circular drive is especially beautiful to me. It reminds me of the old homes in Frederick, MD, and the old towns in that area.

Yeah, the older homes look like homes not like modern housing cubicles (ticky-tackey). I don't have as much trouble with an SLR keeping things level and square in the VF but using an aux finder on an RF is a lot more difficult for me. I can't complain about the 21/4 CV and all the shots were at F4 or 5.6.
...... As you can see I have a little trouble keeping everything square and level ....
You probably know this already, but just in case. In a darkroom you would tilt the paper holder under the enlarger to straighten the verticals. In ps there's the persepective feature you use with the crop tool. Maybe something similar in other editors.
I think I'd prefer the last one, garden looks more challenging. A room for everything - one for changing films, one for the collection, one for the screwdrivers, one for..... I suppose when you're wishing like this you're also allowed to wish for the appropriate income to go with the house
I never really got around to trying the different features of my PS2 Elements because the help section was written by someone who assumed you were already PS literate and so basically useless to me. However now that you mentioned the perspective control feature associated with the crop tool I just played with it. Thanks for the tip and it seems to work.
Sorry Ron - I'm going even further back than that. I was referring to the film with Cary Grant and Constance Bennett, who die and come back as ghosts, and decide to liven up the life of their rather stuffy friend Cosmo Topper.
I quite like Constance Bennett - something about her voice, among other sterling attributes!
John: I remember that movie! It was about 15-16 years old when the "Topper" TV series began in 1953. I was a fan of the TV series as a kid, and didn't realize the movie existed until later. In fact, I think I saw it on one of those TV shows from the 50s that used to run the "old" movies.
----- Walker: Robert Sterling played Kerby, and Ann Jeffreys was his wife. She's still around...a rather nice looking 84-year-old! I read somewhere she was still acting, appearing in a production of "Richard III" that is supposed to be happening this year!
