    Palmer, MA

    The Steaming Tender in Palmer, and their newest addition - an ex-New Haven copper clad coach. If I remember correctly, this will be converted into seating for patrons of the restaurant.

    I agree with zacker on the sky. And the puffy white clouds really make it stand out.

    I'd love to check out that resaurant somtime in the future...

    Tom, great composition and good use of B&W and wide angle too. One thing you might want to try... not sure how it would look... is to square up the resturant with the bottom horizontal of the image. I think that a PS CS2 "free transform > distort" would let you do that. It can work some real magic on wide angle distortion.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words! (sorry for the late reply - I guess I missed the email)

    Blade-

    Nope, no polarizer. Only a bit of channel mixer in the B&W conversion. Forgot what the actual settings were, but I didn't slap the polarizer on. It was early morning so the sun was somewhat low in the sky anyways, giving the color version a nice deep blue. Chanel mixer just accentuated the blue - in essence I was throwing a yellow #8 on the front of the lens.

    Mike-

    Thanks! Yeah, the Sigma 18-50mm does show some distortion at the wide end. I'm one of those guys that likes to get it right in the camera instead of relying on PS to do it. I may try it to see what it looks like and how much it chops off of the sides.

    Tom, actually you should necessarily lose anything. It would just distort that lower right corner to let the building square up. It looks great the way it is, I was just mentioning it because I would probably try it if it were my image... to see what it looked like. I also like to get things right in the camera... but sometimes the equipment can't do what you want it to. (or I don't have the equipment... i.e. a T/S lens)
