Volume Anamorphosis Distortion

Volume Anamorphosis Distortion

Kowloon, Hong Kong view map

3D objects are stretched by ultra wide angle lens like the Canon 10-22 with low barrel distortion. It stretches head into ovals, including the persons in the back. It also distorts the lamp shades.
On the right is a corrected version of the photo. Besides correcting the perspective of tilting down, I ADDED a little barrel distortion. You can see the edges of the ceiling, walls and tables are slightly curved. But the heads look normal, and so do the lamp shades.
The distortion of being too close still remains. I want this effect to exaggerate the food.
