Help With Picture

Mon Dec 17, 2001 9:07 am

Hello:
Today I received a rejection note for a picture that was submitted some time ago. The reason for the rejection was that the horizon was not level. I am trying to fix this and upload it again, but not too sure which way and how much rotation it needs. I am also having difficulty finding the ID number for that picture so that it can re-loaded.
The picture can be found at:

Thaks in advance:
Mario

About 2-3 degrees CW rotation should do it. Just try until you get it level.
Since it wasn't accepted it doesn't have an ID number, so you just upload it the same way as you did the first time.

Regards,

Staffan

A difficult one.

1.5 degrees clockwise does it for me - the taxiway or runway in the background is then level. Also the thing with a ball on behind the tail (please excuse my ignorance) is then vertical too.

Craig.

The thing with the ball is probally some type of radar, most likely dopler.
At worst, you screw up and die.

I was just guessing how much rotation it needed, and since I never have to rotate my photos I got it wrong  Big grin

Just try until you get it level, and as Craig said, it's good to look at vertical posts too making sure it's rally level.

Staffan,
I wish I could hold my camera level like you, so I wouldn't have to rotate my pics  Smile

If you have Photoshop, take the ruler tool and make with it a line parallel to the horizon. Then go to picture/rotate/manually and you have the exact number already filled in. just press OK.
If you don't have this feature and have to try, don't rotate several times, because each time the pixels are rearranged and each time information is lost. After three times you'll have a totally blurry picture. Rather try out an angle, and if it was too much, undo and try a smaller, and so on, until you have it.

Just a final tip: take the original picture, rotate it, and do the rest of the work you've alredy done in your previous pic. It's important to use the unsharp mask after rotating.

Thank you guys for your help.

Craigy: I tried rotating the picture 1.5 degrees and it does level the horizon, however there is a white margin that shows at the bottom left corner and top right corner after rotation ??. I use GIMP to adjust my pictures, but have Photoshop in my Whish List.

Sharpnfuzzy:You are correct, that is YXU, my city airport. There is an observation deck open to the public but it is behind glass. I used a Polarizing filter to avoid reflections form the window. I have tried shooting from the fence but have had little success.

Gracias Gerardo and Feliz Navidad.
Mario

TACA300C: You have to crop a little after you rotate to get rid of that white margin. Take off as little as possible.  Big grin
