The problem was, in photographing St. John's Presbyterian church in Beach Road, South Shields I was afraid of stepping back far enough whilst framing the shot. I was already on the kerb and in danger of stepping into a busy road right next to the Town Hall. Really I ought to have shot this from the far side of the road when the traffic was a bit lighter.......but silly me had to take it there and then!
I knew that at the short end of this lens that I'd have converging verticals and that I'd need to use the lens correction filter in Photoshop to straighten it up but I was too hasty in framing the shot. If I hadn't have been so silly I would have framed it with FAR MORE SPACE around the building, that way when Photoshop had finished working its magic tricks, I could have cropped the image WITHOUT losing so much around the sides.
A silly lesson firmly learned today.
