Most of us knows that shooting with a wide angle lens tends to distort an image. With this quick technique, you can fix those light poles or trees that are tilted. Below is a quick summary on how it's done.
1.) Use the Rectangular Marque Tool (M) and make a selection around the light pole. 2.) With the Marque selected, copy the selection to a new layer Cmd+J (Ctrl+J). 3.) Transform the selection of the new layer Cmd+T (Ctrl +T). 4.) Press and hold down Shift+Cmd (Shift+Ctrl) and move the top, center transformation control to the left or right. 5.) Press Enter to accept the changes.
Actually when you select and transform the selected area, the layer below will be visible and you should clone that area too, especially if there is a complicated background. Reviewers will easily see the visible background and they will probably reject the submission.
