I rarely shoot this wide because it looks like all the buildings are falling into each other haha. However, if you want all the buildings in one shot so close, there isn’t much choice. I shot this one in Chinatown in Calgary, Alberta Canada.

Thanks for stopping by, Rob
I love this, I know I have the same issue with buildings. PS Elements 12 has a way of correcting it, but as of this moment I have not tried it yet. I rarely pull out Photoshop now that I am using Lightroom.
Than you 🙂 There is a lens correction in LR too, but i’m sure you’ve already tried that. I find it doesn’t make much difference when shooting this wide haha. Anyhow, thanks for stopping by and commenting Deborah! See you around ;).
Reblogged this on rebloggobbler.
It’s often a dilemma when shooting architecture. To have the buildings straight, or in this case, to leave them with the extreme angle. I think both can work, depending on the type of shot or location. For example, in Hong Kong, which is a very vertical city – having the image, like yours above, is appropriate. Great one, nonetheless! 🙂
Love the wide angle “look.” Great shot 🙂
Try a PC lens, that usually does the trick. I like the shot anyway, perspective control or not. 🙂
