. i think you took a picture of the sky in the original image ?? Your framing is wrong, you could have reduced significantly the vertical corrections to be made.

How? I simply cannot level the camera and the Cathedral is very tall so have to frame like that. If leveled the camera further down that might have to cut the tower of the cathedral a bit after full vertical perspective fix. As said my body already against the wall of another building behind me so no further I can retreat.

Look at the first picture quoted above. There is a lot of blue sky which you just cropped away in the second picture (when you also did the perspective correction). Clearly you could have leveled the camera a lot more when taking the picture, and still kept the entire cathedral in the frame!
And if you leveled it more then it would be far less perspective correction necessary, and you wouldn't have to crop so much from the sides. This is an unfair comparison to the TS lens which was not framed to include all that sky.
