Hi, I bought the Canon 20D kiton Monday with the 18-55 lens.But I have noticed photos of buildings are leaning in. Is there any way to avoid this?I have attached a pic so you can see what I mean. I know it is a little wonky,but I don't think this is the problem. Any help appreciated.

One way is in post processing.

The other way is to keep the plane of your sensor/film parallel to the subject.

In either case, it is called "perspective distortion". Feed that (and camera) into Google and you will find more stuff than you probably want to know.

Thanks for your help Bill. I will do a search and have a go at it,but it looks as though I will have to be very careful.

Either treat yourself too a T & S lens or revert back too film photography so that you can tilt the easel under the enlarger.
