Is This Level?

Fri Oct 21, 2005 12:59 am

Hello,

I just uploaded a photo, but I have serious doubts as to whether it is level or not:

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/big/ready/C-FWNM_082405_Wywrot.JPG

It looks very unlevel, but the runway sign posts and blurred pole in the background seem to indicate that it indeed is (I have checked them using the grid).

What do you think?

Thanks,

Hi...

Not sure about this... well the sign post looks alright but the road and trees seem to be rotated to the right...

My initial thought was to level it with the corn. I would think a field is level somewhat. The sign could be off. As Paul Markman says, make it look like the photo is level. I think that is what A.net is after.

Hi Dustin,

Whatever reference you use, this will definitely be screened as not level. My experience tells me that the sign will not be seen as a reliable reference - it is not very tall and so you can give the photo quite a large rotation without this looking too far wrong.

I tried to level the photo using the line of the edge of the taxiway, behind the sign. That way the photo looks more level, and the vegetation at the back of the photo also looks better. The sign then looked very slightly off to me, but this was giving it almost 3 degrees of rotation - a big number for this kind of issue. So I think you can afford to rotate it by something like that and generally the whole thing will look a lot less like it needs CCW rotation. For me, as it stands now, it definitely needs some of this.

Hope this helps.

Paul

Hi,

I agree with Paul. This shot definitely needs some CCW rotation.

Nope, not level to me.

Thanks guys, I will re-level using the runway and horizon as a reference.

Paul...

I knew this topic would be so attractive as fresh meat for a shark!  Big grin

All the best
