Here it is defished. I do not have handy any severe de-fished shots, but they have all turned out with similar excellence.

Thanks Henry, that's very helpful. There was one example on the PTLens website as well, but your images have made things a little more clear. From what I can see the fisheye correction sorts out the extreme barrel roll distortion, but there is still a degree of perspective distortion that remains. I'd also imagine you need quite a good eye or maybe just a bit of experience/practice to get the photo's looking realistic. I'm also a little concerned about the length of time I might have to spend post processing. I recently visited a public garden and took about 700 photos. I did a batch resize and then went back and did more work on just the photo's that needed more attention and it took several days. I'm thinking that if I had to do work individually to each shot it would take weeks to complete, but I guess if I just used a fisheye as a last resort for occasional photo's it wouldn't be so bad.

Thanks again, I, at least, have a better idea of my options.
