A few seconds before from the same spot at 18mm. The barrel distortion is pronounced. What's the best tool for fixing that?

Call me ignorant but I don't see any barrel distortion in either photo. Both are excellent.

Paint Shop Pro X has tools for correcting barrel and similar distortions. They work fairly well but sometimes too well. I suspect PS and possibly PSE have similar tools.

I agree with Cal, I couldn't detect any appreciable barrel distortion. In fact it motivated me to go look up the specs for the TAMRON since the shot was so free of barrel distortion.

I find by experiment, laying a ruler along the bridge, the deck appears curved in a vertical plane. The question is, is it the bridge or the lens?
