Wel this shot was made with the 'kit zoom' at it's widest and looking up so perspective WAS distorted, However, it does do justice to this spot which is incredibly steep up to the ruins of the abbey,......Have a look at my other shot entitled 'Lets take a picture' and you will get some idea.

For this shot I don't particularly care for the 'tilted' street lamp so may re-edit to correct the verticals and see what it looks like......

Nice shot Cornet1.

I like the perspective. I'm not sure where Whitby is in England but it has that Thomas Hardy let's go for a walk around Wessex look about it.

Thanks for the comments......

Whitby is on the Yorkshire East Coast overlooking the North Sea and at he end of the Yorkshire moors. Hardy Country is in the county of Dorset in south west England adjacent to the English Channel. The countryside is quite different in character for either an dboth have numerous possibilities for photographs.
