Bundamba State School, Ipswich
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

I've wanted to do this all week. Katter is a nutter. This is my political comment.

The camera & lens:

Camera: iPhone 4
Exposure: 1/2500" @ f/2.8, ISO 80

Post processing:

Lightroom 4 -

  1. ACR lens correction - profile for iPhone 4.
  2. Custom lens correction - distortion +40, vertical +12, horizontal +10 - this squeezed the shot back to something straight.
  3. While this straightened the sign, it bent the fencing behind it a lot, so I've cropped most of it out.

The wash-up:

I was avoiding confrontation, so I went around the side of the school - less travelled by people, but the sign was bulging. It would have been easier to photograph a straight one from the start. I also had the idea to get a flyer and stick googly eyes on that afterward.

What would you do?
