Need Help With Rotation

Thu Mar 25, 2004 4:49 am

I need your help guys, this image is rejected several times for badcameraangle I rotated different ways, but I can't see how to rotate maybe some screeners can tell me what they mean by horizon level.

Since the far horizon varies, it may be quite difficult to adjust. The light pole seems to be straight up and down. Changing the angle to correct the horizon would put bad angle on the foreground.

I used the buildings for vertical alignment.

This one was also rejected for bad horizon angle, I finally just gave up. I think the building throws it off. Maybe I'll go back get another shot at another angle and see what happens then. I assume that some bad angle shots just have a bad background, and there is not much you can do about that.

Go3team I would make the corner of the building above the aircraft parallel with the sides of the picture.....Artie

I threw it in PS and it looks like if you rotate it clockwise about .5 degrees it looks better. But thats just my screwy eyes  Nuts

It's is accepted now, but in my eyes the buildings are not vertical. If this is what airliners.net what ok. It was a though one, I like the sharpness of this photo and the colors and wants to share it with you, only the cameraangle was a problem.

I think the closer buildings are ok, its the one on the hill towards the left of the photo that looks like its leaning. BTW, great shot!

I like this photo very much.

To me, the tall building on the left appears to be leaning to the left. And the one on the right is leaning to the right! So I guess those are not good things to measure against. The pole and center building all appear to be quite vertical.

Dear Karlok,
It looks to me like the picture should be rotated so as to Lower the nose just slightly. But anyway you got it accepted now.

The normal checkpoint for this is in the middle of the picture. Towards the side edges of the picture lines are not vertical even if the horizon is exactly level. A common mistake is to adjust with verticals on the edges of the pictures. Then you don´t get it level.

The eye is pretty sensitive to this, so the best thing you can do is to make a judgment on what looks best to the eye, and then let it stay that way.

Pictures with planes climbing, descending or perhaps DC-3:s on ground often lead to misjudgments by inexperienced photographers. Always check the surrounding terrain. Then you get it right most of the time.

Now that you learned, you will probably increase your acceptance rate.

Best regards,

Stefan

And Burke,
Your photo should be rotated so that you go up with the nose pretty much. Adjust to the vertical line in the middle of the picture.

Anyway, very nice pictures !!!
