Definitely a better shot wide. I read that smart phones with auto-WB do not 
capture the color correctly. Is that the 16-35/4? 16-45/4 must be typo.

The perspective correction, to my eye, does not add much over just the Lens 
correction. Which tool did you use for Lens correction?

The wider looks great. And nothing looks stretched out of place. When I want 
wide, sometimes 16 does not always get there. And I don't see how a stitch 
could quite do the job either.
