Took this with my Canon 20D and new Tokina 12-24 f4. Here is the original, showing the normal distortion you would get from an ultra wide-angle lens.

Then I did some PP in Corel PhotoPaint X3 with this result. Which do you prefer?

I prefer the corrected version. I also noticed a tiny bit of vignetting in top corners of the original.

Very successful, PP, Walter.
As long as the edifice was not originally designed conically:!:, I'd also prefer the edited second version, as with Ladyhawk.

No, it's not conical, but straight sided. Here's another angle. In this one I masked out the sky and replaced it with a cloudy sky that I thought matched the clouds reflected in the building that day.

Oh, so sorry conveying you wrong message, Walter.
I did not intend to mean that I doubt if the the building was conical, but just wanted to emphasize my favour for your PP version.
And for your following photo, I'd say, you've undoubly done the best thing that could ever happen to a glass building such as this..
