It seems to me that if you shoot something like a building from an angle were lines converge a lot (close to right next to the thing) then you're going to have to apply a lot of correction to make those lines straight and doing so is never going to look right. If you can't shoot the thing from a perspective where the lines converge less, then you may as well compose the image to have the lines converging. Basically, if you want a realistic look, then you have to avoid shots where a large amount of correction is necessary.

My take on this - if you cannot beat them, join them. Get even closer and emphasize the "distortion". Or better yet, use a fisheye lens!

Or simply simulate the fisheye lens !

Well, that would take a much more expensive (a very wide) lens if it is even possible. My EF 15mm has 180 degrees diagonal AOV.

With pano then

Or you could buy a oils and canvas and paint it as you please. The question however is about photography, not about computers or paintings. A shift lens or wide and crop is a photography solution..

ps. Sorry, responded to wrong posting but nevermind, ignore..
