I learnt a new trick in PS today, perspective warp. Rather than relying on the automatic tools of lightroom, which by the way does quite a good job anyway, I thought I would have a crack at doing it manually, mainly since lightroom just could not quite get it right for me 🙂 . I reckon the perspective warp in PS could pretty well correct any image, in this image the focal length is quite wide hence you get quite a bit of distortion which makes the buildings look as if they are falling backwards, I wanted to correct the image and give it more of a flat view which you see when using a longer focal length.
The perspective warp tool in PS uses a series of boxes with grids to then push and pull the image, using a series of these grids you can effectively 'tilt' the image forward, much like you can in lightroom however with alot control.
So here we have it, corrected Barangaroo, the now dominant player in the skyline.
