Some interesting compositions, especially the verticals. The D800 has captured some nice range of tones. Something tells me you are hand holding? Nothing wrong with that although slower work on the tripod really fine tunes things and ISO 100. About the keystoning distortion - with all those nice pixels the D800 has, try holding the camera more level, the crop a bunch later to get your composition.

Ernie, thanks for your thoughts. Yes these were handheld using the tamron 24-70mm vc so i was pretty much okay with camera shake. Regarding the distortion, i tend to use Viewnx 2 and lightroom 5 for my workflow. For whatever reason, distortion is so hard for me to pick out and say "oh my i need to fix that" don't know what it is. Anyway, what's the best way in fixing this? Is there a lens correction that i have to enable?

Thanks for the help

I see you're using LR5 - there is a tool that is perfect for this....  the Upright Tool.  Google it and check out some of the fine video tutorials available to learn its use.  It's a new tool for LR5 and one of my favourites!
