Beautiful shot of this rare "Leaning Tower of Penshurst", Pat.
Pat Williams: Indeed, not as famous as the one in Pisa, but just as spectacular!

A touch of castle is better than no castle at what I always say, Pat! grin
Pat Williams: It was the clouds I was after! The leaning castle just adds a talking point. smile

T'was a lovely day out wasn't it Pat. A beautiful photograph, and yes, the grounds and the main buildings were completely off at a kilter.. ha ha

Lends it some character I think. The builders had probably been drinking... smile
Pat Williams: Actually it was me off at a kilter. One or two Chardonnays did the trick!!!
I like the composition but it does lean a bit! I use a little program called ShiftN. It is very good for straightening things. It is a free download.
Pat Williams: Thanks Bill. I can correct this is the programme I use, but I decided against it! I am a bit woo and a bit way sometimes!

Wonderfulclouds and blue sky.
Pat Williams: Thanks Vintage. They were the main focus for me in this one. I just thought I'd throw in a bit of leaning castle for a giggle!!

Love the color in this, so bright and happy feeling. I think the building wants to follow the clouds smile
Pat Williams: There you go SuRi, you have hit the nail on the head. Wouldn't we all like to follow the clouds sometimes?

LOL.. agree with the otther comments about the the elaning castle! wink Wonderful clouds, that's for sure!
Pat Williams: Hi Alan, At least it's given a few chuckles. Thanks for commenting. smile
Lovely sky Pat, I also, like Bill, use ShiftN to sort out sloping problems, I find it easier than PS, and I still like your photo whatever.
Pat Williams: Thanks for that Brian. As I said to Bill, I could have straightened it but I thought "Let's not, and say we did"

maybe the foundations just need strengthening grin. other wise a fine shot of this building and grounds Patsmile
Pat Williams: Hi Tim, I think it's me who needs strengthening! The castle was straight, I was at a kilter! LOL. Still it got people talking! smile
Good timing with the clouds
Pat Williams: I must confess, that was my main aim in this photograph. The leaning tower was slightly incidental! smile
