Neuro, very good shots, your ones in Beijing!
Let me say, by the way, that you don't need T&S to get parallel lines in the digital era! ;)
To stay in Beijing, let me show you a Steven Holl architecture in Beijing. EF16-35L II at 35mm, PP LR 3.6. The point of shooting was extremely close, since the street was very narrow...

What do you mean? Straighten the photo in post?

Then please show me a fullsize, non-cropped image with the same effect and same corner quality. and also, adjust DOF like you can with tiltshift, for example full DOF on a landscape image at f8. Also with rotated plane of focus. It's only possible with tiltshift.

And finally this one also taken using my favorite lens...

Nice! I really like this shot!
What is truth?

The Crop Tool in LR 3.6 has "angle adjustment" to straighten angles/lines.

True.  DxO can correct keystoning, too.  But you need to know ahead of time that you're going to need that, and frame loosely to allow for the cropping space needed for the corrections.  Plus, you'll have soft corners, not as bad as a de-fish, but definitely soft.

Do you mean something like the two following examples? And in regard of cropping, it is exactly for that reason that I like the big megapixel range of my 1Ds and 5D. I like to be free to recompose my images by cropping them regardless of just falling lines...

The post edit T/S effects really look like they were don in post.
Look how beautiful the blur is and how sharp and colorful the lens is!
I have 0 sharpening added and zero saturation added!
This was shot at f/3.5

One more at f/8. same thing here, no adjustments zero sharpness added in camera or post. straight out the camera with neutral picture style. beautiful sharpness. i believe i shifted up a little.

I'm not sure about soft corners... My main field is architecture and I made large use of perspective correction without suffering of soft corners. In the full resolution version of Steven Holl building I can't see any soft corner. Obviously we are comparing a prime lens (24 T&S) with a zoom lens (16-35) and this is not a fair competition!
By the way, the only way for not needing any correction, particularly with a lens quite complex to operate mechanically, is to put it on a tripod. Your Chinese temple, for instance, and the bell tower too, beautiful pictures nevertheless, are not perfectly orthogonal and they need all some adjustment... ;)

True.  The temple was handheld, however, the Custom House Tower was on a tripod (0.5 s exposure, I think).  However, in both cases I was too close, and really needed a 17mm TS-E for those shots - even with max shift, I had to point the camera up a bit to get the full height of the structure in both cases, and that resulted in the perspective distortion.

Obviously, since what I did in this PP what is impossible with a T&S: selecting an arbitrary, poligonal area, just to demonstrate what is possible in PP. Actually I don't like this effect and I never use in my compositions, as, usually, I don't like to aim the attention on a subject other than playing with plain and simple DoF...

Actually this is not a 'distortion', but just 'geometrical perspective'... It appears a 'distortion' in 2D since our eyes+visual cortex do in 3D vision something similar to a PP, and we don't notice the perspective effects in direct perception...
