It works rather well! I would not change a thing. Having the right & left sides dark like that really forces you down that street. It also makes it a little 3D like. If I had to nit pick it would be on some perspective control. The chimney on the right and the rain gutters on the left seem to tilt out at the top of the image. Really nice image Jean.
If 'keyhole' effect is anything like pinhole photography, I'd say distortion adds to the antique photograph look. I can almost believe this photo is 100 years old. Jean-luc, I've never been interested in trying that software - until now!
Thank you so much Larry to wake me up:you've "pinholed"it down !!!!!. this is what I meant to write "Pinhole photography" and not keyhole , it is probably because I am due to have some keyhole surgery in a couple of weeks. Yes you are right, pinhole photography could tilt edge , not sure it would be towards the outside though. Jean-luc

Thank you John. Yes , it could have been taken then. This is Merton street, the only true cobble stone street left in Oxford. Even the cobbles are grade listed. The walls on the left are those of Merton college which dates from 1264!! Searching the web, I actually found a drawing from a similar spot dating from .......1837! so well done John. Jean-luc
