    Do you guys use keytone process to correct your architecture picture? Do you usually prefer the as-shot or the keystoned one?
    Could be nice to do a before / after keystone on architecture picture.


    Here's one.
    I used the same photo for the keystone, so it's a bit cropped vs the original.

    It depends for me. Sometimes i do, sometimes I don't. I mean, I always try correcting, but I do not always use corrected.

    I like your idea of presenting two views.

    In this case I much prefer the extreme uncorrected version. it give you more of a sense for the place. The corrected version is just... comfortable.

    I see what you mean.
    With the straighten photo you lose the dramatic effect of the picture.

    Yes, but not always. I think your example may be an example of where corrected is better. Hard to frame for corrected. Always have to give yourself the extra room. Great thread topic. Looking forward to hearing other's views on this topic.

    Woof, I prefer your corrected version because it leads the eye to the stained glass, organ pipes and ceiling in that order. The uncorrected version diverts my attention to the pillars and ceiling first, then the organ pipes and finally the window.
