Last week I was off my factory for some product development and was required to travel towards Mumbai. Well during my off the factory schedule I always carry my camera. This one I captured on the way back to home. My bus was halted for a break and sun was setting in the rusted evening.

    G’day Prasad,

    The lovely gradient sky colour works so well with the almost full black silhouette and the tower is filled with interesting shapes and angles.
    There is a tilt to the tower though that can be easily straightened.
    The focus is more than adequate for such a shot under those conditions.
    Well seen and nicely photographed.


  • When I spotted this tower first, I was in the bus and it was haulted for a while after about 2 hours journey. The sun was slowly setting down. The town is a famous hill station about an hours journey. As I sighted it, first thought came in my mind after realizing it has a potential was of Dennis!!! What a great pleasure you are here!

    I captured this one with odd positioned on the seat and half opened window, although it’s not a gooooooood explanation for the tilt :)) I hope to work it out. Your visit has boosted my moral here added with favorite to your club as an icing on top!!

    For me it’s a beginning of my journey to what I visioned………………!!

    G’day Prasad,

    Here is a tutorial you may wish to use for straightening horizons, buidlings and ………. towers!:


    Ever had people say things like, “Great photograph – shame about the tilted horizon”? I have!

    When it’s all added up, I suppose I have spent three months, two weeks, five hours, twenty two minutes and thirteen seconds of my time adjusting my tilted horizons and leaning towers by the ‘trial and error’ method using the ‘Image → Rotate Canvas → Arbitrary’ path in Photoshop.

    Is there an easier way? You better believe it buddy! And here are two ways to solve the problem:

    OK! Here’s what you do:
    1. Image in Photoshop.
    2. Click on Cropping Tool.
    3. Click the mouse on a corner and drag it right across the image.
    4. Tick the Perspective box that appears on top of the Photoshop screen.
    5. Click and drag a corner that is closest to the vertical OR horizontal ‘tilt’ until the edge of the cropping frame is parallel to the ‘tilt’.
    6. Hit Enter and voila! :)
    A. Remember to untick the Perspective box next time you use the Crop Tool or you may end up with some weird cropping.
    B. There will be some loss of quality in the areas affected by this process however if you have a good quality photograph to start with, after processing through a good Work Flow the loss should be barely discernable.


    1. Click and hold on the Eyedropper Tool and keeping the mouse button down, slide down to the Measuring Tool.
    2. Place the cursor at one end of the ‘tilt’, click the mouse and move it to the other end and click again.
    3. Go to ‘Image → Rotate → Arbitrary’. (The degree of tilt is automatically shown). Click ‘OK’ and voila again! :)
    (With this method you need to re-crop).

    I hope that helps y’all.


  • Hi Dennis, Your tutorial has worked worth for me to straighten the tower. Thanks friend I am li’l late to update as again I have reprocessed this one to bring up the details of sky more effectively.
