La Parroquia

This is one of the most photographed buildings in the world, in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico. So I wanted to do something a little different. I stood close and did a vertical panorama with a Panasonic FX1000. It produced a very curved and foreshortened structure. I then resized the image only in the vertical direction to bring it back closer to reality, leaving just enough curve in the outer columns so viewers would sense something very unusual about my rendition. I also replaced a dreary grey sky with something more interesting.
