the result would pretty much...
look like the picture he has uploaded.

i guess he was using rise, and not tilt.

Assuming the OP does not correct the camera orientation, yes; but as I noted in the post if he does correct the roll, pitch and yaw, he will get the result:

Here's how:

Mount the camera on tripod. Don't worry about not having all the building in the viewfinder frame at this stage. Just use in-camera level or one of these (external link) to ensure the camera is absolutely level - forward-backward and left-right. There is also another aspect regarding avoiding keystoning by ensuring sensor plane is parallel to the building facade (as described in rotation about the z-axis, the yaw) especially for full-frontal shots, but for the purpose of explanation, let's just focus on keeping the verticals from converging. At this stage, if you've set up the camera correctly, all the verticals are truly vertical, parallel to each other and they should not be converging. If not, no amount of shift will correct the converging vertical.

BTW, ensure the tilt is neutral, meaning the line marked by "T" is at the middle of the scale, on TS-E 24LII at neutral tilt, you should be able to lock the tilt with the lock button, if you can't lock it, then adjust until it can be locked.

Now, use the knob on the TS-E 24 that is closer to the lens mount to SHIFT the lens. If the shift direction is left-right as opposed to up-down, use the lever on the lens closest to lens mount to allow the lens to rotate 90 degrees so the shift direction runs up and down.

Now shift using the same knob again - the frame should move up and down as you look through the viewfinder (it's almost like a view out from the glass elevator going up or down). Note that while going up and down, the vertical lines remain vertical. Find the shift increment that will best include the entire building, then press shutter button.

et voilĂ

As an aside, shift aspect of the TS lenses merely moves the frame within image circle created by the TS lens, which is much larger than that of conventional lenses. Shift does not manipulate plane of focus. See figure No.2 from the link below:

If it's in focus, it's pornography, if it's out of focus, it's art.

12 image stitched shift...I had not used the angled shift functions before to cover the corners...what a great lens this thing is...the file after the stitch is almost 9000 pixels wide and the files were not upsized on export....

This one has been a masking nightmare. To get the full dynamic range I had to go from 1/8 to 15 seconds, so -4 to +3. And there are so many tiny branches, where the blown out sky cuts the branches out or gives them an odd color cast all the way down to -3, but they appear detail-less until 0, so there's quite a gap in exposures that have to get resolved in 5-20 pixels space in those small border areas. Not to mention all the twig movement from breeze between each of the 7 exposures (times 3 shifts each). The massive greenness of the moss carpet really messes with the white balance as well, especially since the canopy filters out most direct light. A mist droplet fell on the lens towards the last couple shots, causing a touch of flare on -3 and -4.

I dedicated 5 hours to the image yesterday, and pulled this out finally. The branches still bother me a bit but I've settled for the fact that it was just a difficult shot.

I wish I had included a person in the shot, because you lose the perspective of how massive the trees are. Towards the left bottom side, there is a dark shadowy tree stump. From the base of the shadow to the fern tuft above it, is about 6ft.

Here are some of my first attempts at shift and tilt with this lens. This forum led me to purchasing this lens. Love it! So sharp and fun to use.
