Fixing Perspective in this image

I took this image using HDR at my friends holiday house. I am pretty happy with the image other that the perspective. I have tried using the Crop (Perspective) tool and the Distort (Lens Correction) filter to straighten this image out but cant get it to look right. The wall cabinets at the rear of the kitchen look like they are sloping toward the window.

Re: Fixing Perspective in this image

Hi Jasosmith,
I went to lens distortion first to straighten up the center verticals, straighten the frame on the opening on the right, and correct a bit of barrel distortion. Then I used skew to fix the left side, that seemed to work better than distort because it left the center verticals alone. When I looked at it in lens distortion again with the grid on, things looked square, but it still looks a bit off for some reason. The oven is pretty straight but still feels tipped. Really wide lenses are so tricky, just a little off looks like a lot. Try using a round bubble level on the camera next time if you didn't here.

Re: Fixing Perspective in this image

The floor is really the main issue. I actually selected the cabinets and the floor on different layers and adjusted those separately.

Re: Fixing Perspective in this image

Thanks guys - they all look considerably better. Juergen - looking at it now it does seem to be the floor causing the major issue. I had a crack at selecting the floor and using the lens correction tool but it didnt work. What did you use on the cupboards and floor?

Re: Fixing Perspective in this image

I put the left and right cabinets on one layer each, also the floor. Then I used Free Transform (Skew) on all of them separately, also some cloning to ease the transitions. I started out by straightening the whole image, so I had pretty good verticals and a fairly good horizontal in the center.

The blue lamp in the ceiling is also somewhat tilted. I selected it and also used Skew on it.
