Hi Konrad. Take the skew buildings away and this would (again) be right up there. May I suggest trying another but get the building perspective straight and see how it would do? Advanced editing allows it I think. Or shoot more sky and less earth, to get the buildings in the middle of the frame where there's less distortion. I thought long and hard before getting my Tokina 12-24mm f/4 ATC PRO DX due it's distortion, but then I seldom photograph buildings with it. I prefer to use the 28mm DG Sigma (=42mm on DX) for that. Saves me PP :)
