I have never worked as a commercial photographer, so I've never practised much with perspective corrections other than shooting buildings occasionally, which is usually quite straightforward. My 'pretzel' shot was of a rather decrepit pair of diverging overhead concrete roadways, where I used movements to greatly exaggerate certain features to make it look a little post-apocalyptic. It took me half an hour to set up the shot, and I ruined it with a light leak. Silly me, I only took one shot.
