This is the original photograph I took with a Canon 6D and focal length 80mm (desaturated):
I wanted the building to use up more space, so I cropped it:
Because of the tilt of the off-center crop, I corrected the perspective distortion using a software tool:
Now it looked really unnatural, so I tried correcting the perspective distortion from the original not-cropped photo:
This looks better, but still unnatural.
Finally, I am wondering what is the correct or a good way to photograph a building like this?
I think the original photo is still the best, although I am not quiet happy with it, but all the corrected images seem to be unnatural, and the cropping obviously doesn't look good if it is off-center.
Is there an option to improve the photo in post processing?
