Manually in photoshop. Using the free transform tool to straighten the horizon and straighten out the beacon/light pole/stand. I find using the free transform tool to be much more effective at getting the look you want, especially in landscapes where there aren't many hard lines.

Are you doing this in ACR or photoshop?

The actual lens/image distortion correction is done in photoshop (after being exported from lightroom (LR)). I've found the results from doing corrections in LR not as satisfactory as when done manually in PS.

Here's another shot. I am really enjoying this. Can anyone upload a video as to how I am going to calibrate the lens if I need to?

Are there any tutorials on how to do this?

I"m sure there are. But I think you'll be greatly served by going into to PS and just tackling it yourself with some trial and error with the free-transform tool.

This lens has become my most-used lens. I take it with me almost everywhere ... and today, it broke! The focus ring isn't doing anything. I'm not sure if an element has come loose, or if the ring action just broke.

I'm going to try and disassemble it to see if I can fix it. In the meantime, here's my tribute to my cheapest-but-most-used lens:

Thank you! This lens has become my primary lens while hiking. I feel like it's forced me to think about each shot and become a better photographer. Of course the natural beauty of Hawaii doesn't hurt!
