Yes it is a very appealing picture with the correction...What software do you

use to correct with?...I downloaded a few demo progs but haven't got around

to looking at them yet (Optipix and DXO optics pro).* There are also other lenses

PC (perspective correction) lenses advertised on the web that are useful for

architectural captures they are a bit more expensive and probably still require

some software correction in PP.

* ps. I almost forgot there are wide angle zoom lenses 10-24mm or 12-24mm

I dont think they are fisheye. but they are expensive as well :-)
I use an ancient version 8 of Paint Shop Pro for defishing cropping and other touch up . Let me say that its Version 11 is selling like $40 . Very inexpensive.
Fisheye is generally expensive but 80% of my arch shots came from a Russian made manual lens Zenitar 16mm.

I belong to a bunch of people happy/fanatical about this lens

Its bland new costs is about US$150 tax and shipping included. I would consider that is manageable cost if you are comfortable with manual lens.

That program seems to be working ok, with regards to the fisheye lens a lot of

people would say, I suppose it's ok if you are a fish :-)but there are a lot of types

of lenses and filters that add to the fun of photography, andafter you've seen

all the possibilities, you might want to try something else ater a whilewhen the

novelty wears off with the one particular thing you've been doing, thats the thing

about photography as a hobby, there are so many different things you can try

and learn about that it keeps the interest in photography going.
