Night shot, Lightner Building, downtown St. Augustine a few days ago. Is there a cure for the distortion on the walls leaning and the trees curving? Shot with a D7200 and a 16-80 vr lens. Later on my computer I noticed that ONE guy left his office light on. (Right side of photo, second floor) Oh, wait, that's MY office.

This happens when you are shooting up. Either get50 feet off the ground ;) or use distortion tools in your processor. What processor do you use? Oh, you must shoot wider as the corrections often require cropping.

Here is a 10 second "fix" using PS CC. The empty corners resulted from correcting the parallax created by looking up with a wide angle lens.

I know you are adverse to doing much post processing, but the tools today are very quick and easy to use (with a little up front education!).

As noted above, it is now an easy fix in post.
In the past where such processing was not available tilt/shift lenses were often used. I still have one somewhere, might have to dust it off someday
