Straightening buildings

Another beautiful fall day in Central Park.

Tall buildings pose as the backdrop to Central Park. Not So SAHM
Straightening buildings – ProjectEdit365 – 17 Oct

One of the awesome things Lightroom can do is straighten buildings.  My 17-55mm lens can distort tall objects, and with buildings, that’s not a good thing. So, I went down to the “Lens Corrections” and clicked “vertical”. I had to crop after that because it distorts the photo to make the vertical things straight. I added some warm light and adjusted the contrast and clarity. Ugh, I also tried to eliminate some of the sun flare on the building to the right and didn’t do a great job. Here’s the original. You might not even notice how much the buildings are leaning until you look at the edited photo:
