...and of course, if you are going to make a habit of these kinds of shots (lol) then you should definetly look at a tilt-shift lens. At half the price of the Canon, and Nikons I have found the Samyang/Rokinon to do a very decent job. You really only ever need the shift function, and since all t-s lens are manual you might look on eBAy or the camera shops for an old 1970's Nikon PC lens(is shift only) and is quite a nice lens and runs in the $200 range (like all Fmount lens it will mount on just about anything named Nikon.. An adapter to Canon runs $10-$15 from Fotodiox it is a 24mm lens which is really the one you want. the longer focal lengths have very limited usefulness.

I have run into this many times, especially with big paintings in places with difficult angles like cathedrals. Enlarging the canvas is a step I sometimes fail to use in mitigating these situations but you're right, it has a solid place in the workflow.
Thanks for bringing us this discussion, and the very pleasing image you came out with.

I think for a couple I increased the canvas size, but now I need to go back and figure out if I had a brain cramp on others and lost part of the image by not doing that. Thanks so much for the info, Martha

Thank you so much for this. It's helping knowing I can and now knowing how. Thank you! S-
