Mt Dora and Me, Light house and the light
When I whent there after Berry showed a picture, I went about 2 hrs from Holiday Travel Park and Campground via the back roads. Diverted to a great "Fish Camp'.
got to MT DORA, found the "light" was told by a local that the light is maintained by the coast guard at taxpayer expense for this "LAKE"
so, here is the pcture

Annastasia Island, St Augustine, FL
This is more a less a trial run here. apologizes[ATTACH]37846[/ATTACH] if it does fills your screen. More work may be required.
Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse, FL
This was taken from the restaurant patio across the inlet from the lighthouse, while enjoying the view and food. One can go directly up to the lighthouse from the other side of the inlet.[ATTACH]37850[/ATTACH]
distorted lens problem, of course, question was a TRAP
[QUOTE=GeneT;857477]Lens distortion, the flag pole being closer is actually and normally distorted by the closeness to the lens, a longer focal length lens will not do that, or possible not as extreme. RE: stand close to a tall building with a short focal length lens and notice the curvature of the building, mostly at the extreme sides.
Perhaps if your camera has a grid in the viewfinder try turning it on and using it to align tall subjects. The photo of this light I submitted likely had a crooked lighthouse do to my closeness, that 's where photo shop comes in handy.
AH HA, you correctly got the answer, neither are crooked, fortunatly as a former Graphic's person, I also knew it. Usually I carry a few cameras but on THE RT, I dont always have the room, This is a small SONY and not very good but handy.
a easy Picture to HELP find the subject
I hope this can be of help..
I notice that there are a few missing, But it looks good
