    Dear all,

    I would like to ask you if in this shot here


    the wall that is not straighten (right of the icon and left of the priest) hurts the eye.

    For me this angle somehow conveys a bit the notion of movement. Do you agree or should I really fix it (if possible)

    I would like to thank you in advance for your reply

    The top edge of the icon not being horizontal catches my eye first as it is only just out, the angle of the wall works OK as it is 'purposely' not straight.
    Probably easier to fix the top edge of the icon as well!

    I think the underexposure of the shot (particularly of Mary and child) is worse than the slant, but the slant isn't great either - I'd have preferred a straight wall.
