I still remember sometime in the second part of the 1980s. The first breeding pair was back and it made the news. These days there's thousands of these birds around and they're pushing other fish eating birds away.

When I used photoshop as my main editing tool I used ptlens to correct this. In Capture NX it's build in. These tools tend to work by the user (that's me) identifying a straight line. Usually works great.
However, in situations like these it can pose problems. The building is 400+ years old and the window isn't very straight any more. The base player? I doubt it, he was pretty mobile and enjoying his music. An object on the ground? Again, doubtfull, the ground wasn't perfectly level.
In the end I fiddled with it, rotated it about 3 degrees counterclockwise and left it at that.

Only thing I really didn't like were the very sweet muffins but that's personal. Since I bake these things myself I've tweaked my recipe to be less sweet. I like it that way but it does mean I find most other muffins (and a lot of pastry) too sweet. Other people won't have this problem I expect.
