Photo 101: Edge 3.0

Day 18 goal:  Use a photo editing program to align straight edges in your photo to be perfectly vertical or horizontal.

I took these photos the same day I took the “landscape” images.  It was such a beautiful day for photography!  I was lucky to be able to explore the grounds around two houses that were for sale on top of a long ridge.  I would hate to accidentally step over the edge in either of these first two photos — there was a steep hillside below the fencing.

Imagine the views I could have captured if I had been able to get up to those porches!


I’m always desiring to learn and improve upon my photography.  If you have the time, I’d really appreciate hearing your opinion:  Would you compare this post to the previous two and leave a comment telling me which one you like best and why?  Thanks!

Edge 2.0 — Aligning the edges in this photo proved more difficult than I first anticipated.

Edge 1.0 — I was surprised by the kind compliments I received about the photos of my daughter’s little betta fish tank that represented this theme the first time I participated in Photo 101.

  1. Wow, nice photos. I would not like to live in a house on a cliff. Was a fantastic view though. I remember your 2 past posts – that tile floor was beautiful, as was your daughter’s fish tank. Would have been an interesting picture if you could have stood on the 2nd floor balancy of these 2 houses that were for sale. Good job.
