    Thanks all!

    This was maybe my favourite of the set, possibly because of the "sheet" of rain along the focal plane leading in from the right.

    Wish I'd composed slightly higher so the person wasn't so close to the edge - difficult when the lens isn't attached to the camera and you have to hold both steady!

    You are mastering this well - here is a tip

    if you look at the exposure value in the viewfinder when using tilt and shift, it can be wrong - the exposure displayed in live-view will be correct as it is calculated differently

    Cheers for the tip Pixelda, using live-view may be easier to judge the focal plane too, although I'd be a bit worried that I'd be increasing the exposure of my sensor to dust when the lens isn't attached and live view is on
