@Tay0 LOL — to be fair, I don't think I said it was great or anything. I am just very,, very used to it and it's hard to change habits. I'm curious how this experiment goes!
It's my dad!

@lkundrak I love that building! Prague has such a rich mix of architecture — a crazy twisty melty Gehry building right next to others that are hundreds of years old.
I'm poking fun because, while I do expect profesional architectural and real-estate photos to pay attention to details — including this — it's really a trivial thing. I'd say the more import concern of a skilled photographer (pro or not!) is *lighting*. And actually the examples he was so excited about did a poor job on that front.
@dhruvasambrani Historically, a bellows or tilt-shift lens was used to shift the perspective to create an images with parallel verticals. Nowadays, it's a single-click automatic operation in a RAW processing program. (In other words, the filter counteracts the natural effect rather than the other way around.)
@dhruvasambrani Vertical lines generally are *not* parallel to each other, simply due to perspective. However, since we mostly exist at ground level, our mental model does not account for that, and when we see a photograph — which simply reflects the actual perspective, as it can do nothing else. This is one of the reasons looking up from the base of a skyscraper can induce vertigo — your brain wasn't expecting that!
huh. I guess that makes sense — but leaves the problem. I saw someone reply to me with a new line before the actual message and I'm going to copy that — it seems a little nicer at least.
