Early one morning while exploring a remote region of The Royal Kingdom of Bhutan, I spotted this scene next to a school: students and their teaching saying a morning prayer before class.
I wanted to get the shot and I wanted to get everything in the scene in focus, so I used my Canon 17-40mm set at 17mm, chose a small aperture and focused 1/3 into the scene.
However, the shot you see above was a quick fix in Photoshop. The original image is below.
As you can see, in the original image, the teacher looks as though she is leaning over backward, the effect caused of shooting wide and shooting close.
My Photoshop quick fix:
• I selected the entire image.
• I went to Edit > Transform > Distort
• I pulled the top right anchor point inward until the teacher was standing straight up!
• I cropped by picture.
Below is a screen grab of part of that process.
