Hi everyone  Smile

I have this shot of a UPS DC-8 in SLC. It looks really un-level to me, but I leveled it with the utility pole under the tail. I'm not sure if the ramp is sloped, or the pole isn't straight, and I just can't decide if the horizon looks level or not.

Help/advice would be appreciated  Smile

PS - I know it's not the best quality as well, so maybe I should just pull it from the queue anyway?

Jeff,

It looks pretty level to me. I would have chosen the "horizon" at the far end of the ramp that runs beneath the rear of the fuselage to level with. It covers nearly half of the shot, so should give a decent representation, and I just had a quick look in Photoshop and it seems dead level.

Lamp poles are prone to sloping  Smile As for the quality, that seems fine too. There are some slight jaggies on the yellow stripe part of the livery and on the rudder part of the tail, but nothing to worry about I don't think.

Regards,

Tim.



Obviously missing something....

Thanks for the quick replies guys, I'll leave it in for now. I've had a few level rejections as of late so I'm trying to be a little more cautious  Smile
