I shoot with a Canon 550 d and the shots have been taken with the following settings

1. ] f 20 , 1/160 , ISO 200 , 18~135 @ 18 mm

2. ] f 7.1 , 1/160 , ISO 200 , 18~135 @18mm

Both these images have a perspective issue and other shortcomings . If someone could suggest ways to improve on this please. Thanks ..

rajanmukherji:

This is an example of what you might do with Adobe Photoshop Elements. An inexpensive, but totally usable, alternative to Photoshop. Here, I first straightened the picture a bit and then to correct the distortion, I used Filter-Correct Camera Distortion and the verticle distortion slider. Finally, I adjusted exposure Levels and sharpened the photo with the high pass filter as correcting the distortion does reduce sharpness.

A problem with this is that you lose a portion of the photo. In this case some of the top of the building’s center tower. When shooting buildings from ground level it is almost impossible to avoid vertical distortion. It would be good to compose the shot leaving some extra sky which then could be lost in post processing.

Welcome to the forum.

Thank you so much Mandrake, i wanted to include those leaves in the frame but when i stood upright they wold cut off half of the building so i bent down as much as i could without realizing that it would increase the vertical distortion even more … Thank you for the suggestions , will try them out .
