    The only difference I see is the woman going into the building in the lower left.

    On that shot most of the work was on the perspective. Look at the buildings, especially the ones on the left.

    Any updates on how you like the a5000? I am looking at those as B&H is selling for 397 now with spare battery.

    Give up Nikon D3XXX series with multiple lens , old school compared to the newer stuff.
    I didn't want to carry two lens anymore sold the Nikon went with the Panasonic FZ1000 used for around $600 has everything, Zoom range and speed, Leica lens, 4K video!
    Lens: Leica DC Vario-Elmarit
    • Focal Length: 9.12-146mm (equv. 25-400mm)
    • Aperture Range: f/2.8 (W) - 4 (T) to f/11

    also have the Sony Nex 5 mirrorless which has enough features and sharp lens,
    also have an older Panasonic LX5 enough features sharp Leica lens small almost pocket size that want disappoint.

    I may end up with the RX100 series but then its back to 2 lens

    I have been reducing my gear over the years and now I take my iPhone 7 plus and DJI Mavic Pro. For the driving videos I have a helmet mounted stabilized GoPro 3. In extreme cases occasionally I will take my Canon G16. So no more full size cameras for me.

    Since a website only displays 72dpi I'm not sure how you would. If you blew them up on print paper I'm guessing you would.
    Or wanted to crop out just the flag, for example. Or the barn n the back. Or the leaves on the trees, or the gravel on the drive.

    I only shoot high res jpg (RX100) as my pics only get shown digitally. Good enough to print a snapshot if someone wanted it, but my pics are just for memories and sharing online.

    Those aren't the same photo are they?

    On the left, a woman disappeared?

    Ah thanks for the heads up. I just looked through and there are 2 shots nearly identical to each other and on the phone screen as tiny thumbnails I missed that detail:

    So here's the original:

    And then after fixing the perspective/distortion with Snapseed:

    I had made the same observation when you first posted the two pictures.

    Try a LUMIX DX ... small and amazing cameras. I dropped one off a a bike going into a curve and it survived. Leica lenses. Fab camera fits in pocket. The newest does 4K video as well.

    I love the built-in Artistic effects on my Olympus cameras.

    This is the same picture, but different.
